  5. 5. “Generate” Example: Diagnosing Performance Problems John is an engineer at a prestigious energy firm in the southwest where he works on a number of projects dealing with energy exploration and production. As the VP of Operations, it is your job to assess and correct the performance of all engineers in your firm. Recent evaluations of John’s performance by project leads are among the lowest in the firm and peer comments indicate that he comes to meetings unprepared and does not seem to know the technical issues well. You have heard rumors that he hasn’t worked on many projects lately so you request to see his billing records. You do note that he is involved in several professional organizations and serves as a mentor to other younger engineers. #TI4GS
