The Performance Review survives almost intact in most organizations despite the ever increasing rate of adoption of agile and lean techniques. Unfortunately attempts at motivating and engaging employees from such a mindset is more likely to cause damage.

Help your clients to understand the pain of the Mass Production mindset with an experiential simulation. And then see within the simulation how coaching can help adjust the process to use intrinsic motivation through more deep understanding of customer purpose.

(Editor's note: This is a sneak preview of a session that Harold and Chris will be presenting at the Agile2011 conference next month in Salt Lake City. Come to the meetup and save a ton in conference fees and airfare!)
