English term or phrase: incentives that are way off base
During this interview, X is quick to point out that no company wants poor-quality data, yet many companies continue to use multiple operational systems thus risking multiple entries and truncated information. Incentive programs are prime examples of this risk. Many companies have **incentives that are way off base yet cannot fix the incentives** until the data meets quality requirements. Without the right data, you only have mistaken analysis erroneous decisions. So why take the risk?

Kann jemand damit etwas anfangen und bei der Übersetzung helfen? Vielen Dank.

Explanation:
to be off base = daneben liegen (AE coll.), lt. LEO
way off = weit weg
zusammen vielleicht "weit daneben liegen"

Lösungsversuch:
In vielen Unternehmen existieren Incentive-Programme, die ihr eigentliches Ziel verfehlen, aber es gelingt den Unternehmen nicht, diese (Incentive-)Programme so weit zu bereinigen, dass die zugehörigen Daten den gestellten Qualitätsanforderungen genügen.

Ich hoffe das hilft zumindest weiter.
