Basically, research continues to indicate that stimulus-response (read command and control) thinking only works if your people do mechanical work requiring no cognitive skills.  Performance drops as rewards increase, counter-intuitively.

People do better when they achieve AUTONOMY, MASTERY and PURPOSE.  Sort of obvious maybe … hell, Built to Last said it a decade ago:  businesses with a purpose earn more profit than those that simply seek to earn more profit. Echoes as well of The Wisdom of Crowds.

Have a look.
