The Blame Game

Learning Cafe

The standout feedback from the change programme related to the guidance provided  around some self-directed learning. It’s an easy target, one that can quite easily deflect from the root cause and it conveniently provides a scapegoat for under performers or line managers that aren’t managing performance as effectively as they could. Unfortunately the ‘blame game’ isn’t something linked to my last post about gamification. It relates to a catchphrase that was a running joke in a previous role.
