Welcome to Transparent Incentives!

I Want To Contribute

This site was started to create a place on the web where anyone with good, clear, truthful information on the design, practice and science of motivation and incentives can contribute and create a resource free from spin and truthiness

Be  A Contributor!

If you want to be a contributor simply fill out form on left or shoot me an email and I'll approve you as a collaborator.  

I understand if you want to be anonymous so feel free to use a generic name and gmail email - I won't care - unless you get totally spammy and stupid.

Once you've been set up - you'll then have access to contribute, add, update, and change content in this site. My plan is to approve anyone who asks - and only curtail someone's ability to add value once they violate the terms of this site. And those term require that you uphold truth, justice and the incentive way.

You, the ones that will end up using the information - or forwarding it to friends and business associates, will be the ones adding the value. You will be the authors of this great resource.

As a famous guru once said... 

"With great power comes great responsibility."

You have a responsibility. 

Anything that goes up on this site will be truthful.

Let's change an industry.  You KNOW you really want to.  
This is a NO SPIN ZONE!

The goal is to demystify what happens with award pricing, program design, communications and program measurement.  

The real benefit is to those that buy programs.  However, by revealing what really goes on behind the curtain we will create a greater focus on the really important outcome - aligning company and audience behavior in an ethical and successful way.
