I don't know why this book showed up in my list of things to rate for Amazon. I read it about 15 years ago at the suggestion of the Comptroller where I worked. It saved my relationship with out mutual boss (who is still a friend) because it helped all of us understand what was really going on in the office. I have quoted this book MANY TIMES to many people since then.

principle: That gets done which gets rewarded.
Then the book goes on to show how often we do the opposite. For instance, someone is good at doing task A so we give them lots of task A. Maybe they churn through them because they hate task A. You'll end up losing this person w/ this type "reward".

Sometimes we get caught up in 'the trees' and miss the 'big picture'.

This is a very good, older book for remembering 'the forest'. We tend to get more of the behavior we reward.

I frequently miss the fact that I am rewarding bad behavior. Sometimes, the very disapproval I give, is actually taken as a reward of sorts. This book is very simple, but the advice may be surprisingly difficult to follow. The problem is that rewards are a form of communication, and they, like any form of communication, can be confused.

This book is a reminder to examine our reward systems for effectiveness.

The late Earl Nightingale on one of his radio programs recommended this book back in the '70s, and I bought a copy back then, read it, and lost it. I was happy to see it here at Amazon and re-purchased the book to review again. It talks about the secret of motivating employees to do their best at what you need done. You will immediately recognize the wisdom in the pages of this short, pithy, powerful book. It tells a secret we all know instinctively, but further goes on to tell how the secret gets misused and misinterpreted. You see, the Greatest Management Principal can work just as well to foul things up as it does to fix them. LeBofuf sets the watch-points you will need to use the principal wisely, to lead your business to success. This is a must-read for anyone who leads others, or who wants to make their mark in business.

The "greatest management principle in the world" is that "the things that get rewarded get done". This may sound simplistic, but only a small percentage of people apply it.
This has been one of the best business books that I have read, and I have read hundreds. In many ways, it seems so obvious that many people do not bother to understand it. As a result, we keep re-inventing the wheel and wondering why our resources are being wasted.
There are many guidelines of how to spot the ways we are indirectly rewarding the opposite of what we desire. You will soon find yourself often saying to yourself, and hopefully others, "well, the things that get rewarded get done".
This should be required reading for MBA programs, but it was not for the one I was in and it appears it is not in most others. Alas, the things that get rewarded get done.
