Cross-post from BadConsultant:

Well, it wouldn’t be the first time that BadConsultant was riding a trend before it had even become a spark in the eye of an in-utero idea emergent at an innovation incubative blue-sky research fantasy novel land far, far away, would it?

Yet now, some 4 years later, what does BadConsultant read in the comments section of an update on LinkedIn?

“… Let’s pretend that the role of a Chief Performance Officer is to: 1) identify dysfunctions in bot-human, bot-bot, and human-human performances; 2) determine the hidden costs of those dysfunctions (ain’t no line item for ‘shit’s not working’ but there’s damn sure a cost and it’ll be huge for the next 20 years, because a LOT of shit’s not going to work); 3) save the company a LOT of money money by eliminating the dysfunctions; 4) convert the cost savings into investments in sustainable growth via new revenue generating activities….”

Well, who is this BadConsultant to be meek, mild and self-effacing.

You might not remember DestructionHR.com, but we do…

DestructionHR was always intended as a safe haven for those HR and OD professionals who seriously believed the rule-book needed to be torn apart. It started, but very quickly went into suspended animation

[we think of John Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, et al sleeping in their pods on the Nostromo]

mainly because, in every discussion where the title was shared, the knee jerk reaction to that word

Destruction

was absolute

[almost as interesting was the fact that HR representatives actually thought we didn’t take that into consideration when designing the concept]

We were told there was NO WAY that DestructionHR would ever make any sense.

So we let it sleep.

[but, of course, held onto the domain name]

4 years passed

[4 long years of seeing the need for DestructionHR at most clients and at every networking event]

then suddenly we see that comment on LinkedIn.

And just for a second, BadConsultant was seen to do the Snoopy happy dance.

So… Are you a HeRetic?
