…e thing keeps me thinking. In this methodology, it is critical to find a metric we want to improve. In the case of sport, it can be the distance or the duration. In sales or marketing, it can be the profit or the conversion rate. But in some areas (in my case, software development) it is harder to find a metric to improve upon.
Excellent question, Hassen!
First, the approach behind the Ten Percent Advantage is not just quantitative — it’s about approaching change and improvement incrementally. It’s a mindset shift.
The question is: which are the areas you want to improve? How can you track small everyday progress?
Second, you can always find a metric in anything you want to improve. In your case, it could be reducing the number of bugs, the time it takes you to code something, time you allocate to learning new tricks or programming languages, time it takes you to solve a particular problem, etc. These are just guidelines to help you find the specific area you want to improve bit by bit.
Hope this helps ;)
Thanks for your feedback!
