Nice article but I would have liked to see no more than about 7 "rules". Don't we consult that any more than 5 to 7 measures in an incentive plan is too many? Why was Stephen Covey's book so popular? Because it was only SEVEN habits. There is already too much information out there - we need to focus on quality over quantity. In the words of Confucius (irony acknowledged) "Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated"

Thanks for the comment. I agree that this list is extensive. It is based on an actual list of 22 rules by Pixar. While it is very long, it does link to some of the most successful movies of all time.

I find that we often try to get "shorter" lists or "more simple" solutions while losing out on the nuance that makes these programs successful.

Example; It would have been great if Wells Fargo's list of creating an Incentive Plan had included a few extra rules about balancing motivation with pragmatism and auditing of results.
