A 12.12.18 Fast Company article speaks about outcomes resulting from process and the focus on outcomes actually reducing the probability that the outcomes will appear. I've written about this before in **Process is King** and **Process is King Part 2**. Recently there have been opinions that outcomes are what we're after. While of course is correct. But *how do we get those outcomes without a credible process to produce them*? The Fast Company article suggests - correctly - that outcomes are the natural result of a process.

The author got his raise, ran his marathon, saved 20% of his salary every year by having a process FIRST

When we hear *focus on value*, or *focus on outcomes* and don't hear *how are you going to get those outcomes, deliver that value* it usually means those making those statement actually have no idea. They're just mouthing platitudes they heard somewhere else.

Without a process to deliver the needed value, the probability of that happening is low.
