A composite model of what drives us a.k.a. organization development 3.0a

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything
– Sound of Music

Distinction #1
. Skilled/intelligent routine/repetitive work
  – This work can be essentially predictable, as in, “adaptable and tunable”
Vs.
. Creative/imaginative work
  – This work can not be totally predictable, as in, it is subject to continuous “change and surprise”

Distinction #2
. Piece work – pay by the piece, not by the hour;
  – Agree on a standard dollars/per piece
  – This can be done for routine, repetitive work where, based on agreement…
    + A standard hours/piece times a standard dollars/hour gives you a standard dollars/piece

Distinction #3
. Motivation 1.0 – Survival (pay in food, and/or shelter, and/or love and receive, in turn, ditto)
. Motivation 2.0 – Carrot and stick (pay in food, and/or shelter, and/or love, and/or money, and/or products, and/or services, and receive, in turn, ditto)
. Motivation 3.0 – Autonomy, mastery, purpose (pay in food, and/or shelter, and/or love, and/or money, and/or products, and/or services, and/or autonomy, and/or mastery, and/or purpose and receive, in turn, ditto)

Distinction #4
. Competence – Has the level of skills, intelligence, and training to do the work
. Commitment – Has the motivation to excel, and to persevere in, the work

Distinction #5
. Partner: someone with (sufficiently) high competence and commitment = someone with whom you can negotiate to hand off work and not worry about it
. Colleague: someone with (almost enough) competence and commitment = a candidate for you to train and/or inspire, and with whom you can conditionally negotiate to hand off work and, hopefully and ultimately, not worry about it
. Acolyte: someone with (not enough) competence and commitment = a candidate for you to conditionally mentor, at your whim, but with whom, not to build into your enterprise, with predictability, at this time.
. Other: someone with (low) competence and commitment = someone not on your ultimate purpose list at this time
