Meeting the standard vs being the standard

How do we evaluate whether or not we, or our team members, are performing at a “high-level”? Is your “high-level” high enough?

  • “I know it when I see it”
  • Performance reviews?
  • Number of tickets closed/commits/bugs/some other metric/company poll
  • Being held accountable for goals
  • Just be better than the worst person (NO!)

How do we encourage a culture of excellence? “Just hire good people” is part of the solution but it is certainly not the entire solution.

Without something to strive towards, it is too easy to get complacent and slowly rot, especially if we tolerate mediocrity.
