This poster may do a better job, than my posts, of showing why posters and slogan are not an effective management strategy. Text from the poster: “If a pretty poster and a cute saying are all it takes to motivate you, you probably have a very easy job. The kind robots will be doing soon.”
Another poster example: Ambition – The journey of a thousand miles sometimes ends very, very badly.
One of Deming’s 14 obligations of management was to eliminate slogans.
