The Guide to Performance Management is your authority on the most critical metrics when evaluating workers in the information age. In ages past, managing workers entailed a simple evaluation of their physical output. That is, anyone managing a team of laborers used simple metrics that followed the material products produced or moved. Today's economy, however, demands from managers something entirely different.
We begin by helping you examine the current state of your firm's performance management while also looking at the steps necessary to begin improvement. Next, we take you through the process of implementing clearly defined directives. Among these are setting career path directions, developing a performance management timeline and establishing training plans.
In order to get you on track, we also provide a prototype performance management plan. Use this as a model for your firm to make immediate and long-term improvements in the way it develops its people.Managing people in today's marketplace is a whole new ballgame. At what level do you want to play?
