measure G1* for two quarters, then switch the measurement to G2* for the next two and so on. (obviously you don't tell people in advance).

Why obviously? Are you so afraid that people would do the right thing without immediate incentives?

I think I'd measure G1 first, but would tell in advance that next quarter we will measure that one of G1,G2,G3,... which will be most critical at the beginning of that quarter.
