I for one would love to see team bonuses at ABW.This is what was behind a massive and coordinated attempt in the media to force Cummings out over his ill-advised Covid 19 trip.
Cummings is big on performance measurement and payment by results. There are going to be numbers of CS getting bigger bonuses for performing well and greater numbers spending more time with their families.
Add into the mix that people assigned to projects will be with them for the full term and not rotated out of them half way through so the impact of any f-up by them will be very apparent and you can see why the CS is worried.
Particular howls have been coming because if the head of the CS can be removed for a less than stellar performance, lesser fry can be removed even easier. For a long time there has been no penalty for failure in the CS - that's about to be introduced. And a lot of CS don't like it.
Not the miserly forced distribution crap that encourages peers to horde skillsets in order to get on top.
A condition of being promoted to Band B should be that you are to remain with a project throughout it's lifecycle. Particularly the CADMI phases.
It all starts with the requirement and the requirment management. Then we need the contractual mechanisms to hold industry to account.
I'm quite looking forward to Cummins (who clearly values systems thinking) getting stuck into DE&S.
