Perverse Incentives In Your Business

In this solo episode of the Cold Star Project, founder Jason Kanigan explores an example of perverse incentives. The Belgian Congo and atrocities committed there in the name of good accounting are today’s topic.

Also covered are modern examples of perverse incentives, and eight points from a Forbes article on how to develop good performance measures that result in behaviors you want. It’s all too easy to accidentally create a KPI or measure that results in bad behavior.

Look for the Humans WILL Game episode for the factory production scam example.
