Bringing Kaizen to the Contract Process

I noted with interest this article in the New Yorker by James Surowiecki. It’s about how a focus on incremental gains, in sports and elsewhere, has led to a “performance revolution.”

It begins by describing how a “technological and analytical arms race is producing the best athletes in history,” but it goes on to describe similarly dramatic improvements in performance in other fields—in chess, in classical music. It then notes that not only in sports, but also in business, “organizations, in a systematic way, set about making employees more effective and productive.”
