Yet the vision driving this is, to me, truly inspiring: augmenting our performance in the moment and developing us over time in a seamless way, not in an idiosyncratic and unaligned way. The performance model is wrong: it’s not all in the head, it’s distributed across tools and systems. it’s not efficiency, at least until it’s effective. It needs a new design that starts from the performance gap and looks at root causes.
