Description - Perform or Else by Jon McKenzie
"Performance" has become one of the key terms for the 21st century, but what do we mean by it? In today's world it can refer to experimental art; productivity in the workplace; and the functionality of technological systems. Do these disparate fields bear any relation to each other? In "Perform or Else" Jon McKenzie asserts that there is a relationship between cultural, organizational and technological performance. He demonstrates that all three operate together to create powerful and contradictory pressures to "perform...or else".
