Link Incentives to Companywide Goals

To ensure better forecast accuracy, incentives and awards for employees should be based on companywide goals, not those of a single department.

If a company rewards production employees on the basis of lean inventory, for example, they could try to lower forecast numbers to maintain as little inventory as possible. Similarly, if salespeople earn bonuses by beating quotas based on sales forecasts, they may supply misleading data in order to keep forecasts low.

The best measures to use as incentives that won't skew anyone's forecasting acumen or pit one department against another are total revenue, without reference to which units contributed what, and profit.

    Link Incentives to Companywide Goals

    把獎勵與公司面的目標結合起來

    To ensure better forecast accuracy, incentives and awards for employees should be based on companywide goals, not those of a single department.

    為了使預測有佳的準確性,給員工的獎金和獎勵應基於公司面的營運目標,而不是部門的營運目標。

    they could try to lower forecast numbers to maintain as little inventory as possible.

    Similarly, if salespeople earn bonuses by beating quotas based on sales forecasts, they may supply misleading data in order to keep forecasts low.

    舉例來說,如果公司用降低庫存為績效指標來獎勵生產線的員工,這些員工會試著降低預測生產值來讓庫存盡可能降低。

    同樣的,若銷售人員業績比預測數字高的時候可賺取獎金,則銷售人員會提供假資料讓預測數字比較低。

    發放獎金最好是根據全公司的營收(不考慮那個部門貢獻多少)及獲利,如此才不會扭曲任何人的預測,或讓部門間勾心鬥角。
