W. Edwards Deming is credited with saying,
- “a bad system will beat a good person every time.”
Gallup’s US Employee Engagement Survey 2020 (an improvement over 2019 despite the pandemic) reported the following trends:
- 36% are actively engaged
- 50% are disengaged
- 14% are actively disengaged
It is stunning that 64% are either disengaged or actively disengaged.
The brutal facts, Globally (latest from 2018), are even more alarming:
- 15% are actively engaged
- 67% are disengaged
- 18% are actively disengaged
Is it any wonder, then, that 58% of all Agile efforts and 74% of “hybrid” projects fail? It’s a miracle any company survives with engagement numbers like that.
What do you think?
