Because Managing by Integrity makes sure that we play one game at a time, day by day, by creating controllable actions for each goal – we separate ourselves from the companies goals. This can lead to separation from responsibility. We did exactly what we said we would do, so we are in integrity, but there are no results.
For example, if we have a goal of finishing a piece of software but our controllable actions are to play foosball, we can be commit to playing foosball all day and be in integrity, but we won’t see any results.
This is not good, there must be a good balance between 200% responsibility and focus on controllable actions. It is everyone’s job to make sure that the actions we are doing do actually lead to the desired result. If in doubt, make sure that you are leaving your comfort zone and trying something new.
