Performance management systems are highly-effective, closed-loop systems that drive consistent, persistent, high-quality outcomes through a human resources effort that feeds and drives a predictable stream of operational, strategic, tactical and financial success stories.
Effective performance enhancement systems begin with effective “talent management” programs focused on the following processes:
- Discovery – Finding out where all the good talent lives
- Defining – Creating precise and concise position profiles and expert models that align talent with clearly defined expectations, role clarity, along with defined responsibilities, and accountability, and levels of authority
- Deployment – Getting the right people in the right place at the right time with the right tools and right training
- Development – Making sure all human talent is given a clear path to success in meeting or exceeding performance expectations through a rigorous self- and organizational alignment to cultural and development needs.
Performance management systems create clarity and alignment to organizational expectations for performance enhanced by coaching and development programs designed to reward positive behaviors and discourage behaviors that delay or prevent attainment of commonly-defined, agreed-upon goals, expectations, and mission objectives.
Effective performance enhancement systems play on the normal human desire to know the score through the creation of closed-loop systems that give all organizational talent the means to know, on a day-to-day basis, the answer to the question “did I have a good day?”
