Numbers vs. values in management

David Anderson rose (as he often does) an interesting topic about management inputs and outcomes. I completely agree with David that problem of managers who perform but not on company values is dilemma of short-term vs. long-term success. Delivering on numbers while sacrificing values can and probably will have distant consequences.

In my view numbers should come because of values not in spite of them. And in order to ensure that proper system of measurement should be developed. You want to know early when success is achieved at the expense of values, before it starts to affect your long-term performance.
