Implementing a Performance Management System


Like all change programs, a performance management system implementation requires careful planning and management. Every organisation is different. Many factors need to be considered and allowed for.

Design
The design or redesign phase establishes the framework It also includes the planning for the approval, communication, training and administrative phases (the implementation plan).

Approval processes
Once designed or redesigned, the performance management system needs to be reviewed and approved to ensure business and employee needs are met. This covers both management and employee interests.

Senior management need to be satisfied that all relevant requirements have been considered. This includes alignment with corporate business and human resources strategies, as well as ensuring sufficient resources (people and money) have been allocated to the implementation process.

Employees, through some form of participation method, should also have the opportunity to offer comment. Approval also includes agreement to the implementation plan established at the design phase.

Communication
Once the system is approved, the communication strategy should be implemented. This involves communicating the key features, benefits and impact of the scheme.

Performance Management Training Programs


Performance management training situations are varied. The implementation of new or revised schemes often necessitates training. Ongoing training needs also have to be considered, particularly for new employees or those promoted into team leader or managerial positions.

Key Staff Member Training Design/Implementation Participants


These involve information sessions on all aspects of performance management for employees, team leaders and managers participating in system design or redesign. Often a forerunner to workshops where the facilitator leads the design and planning process for the new performance management system.

Employee/Staff Briefings
For new or revised performance schemes, briefing sessions for all participating employees (staff) can answer queries and concerns, providing a solid foundation for successful implementation. Performance management content can include the system structure, corporate rationale, expected benefits, requirements, "how-to" approaches and the like.

Team Leader and Manager Training


More extensive training is required for team leaders and managers who will conduct the review discussions or interviews. This can include: identifying and writing performance objectives, adapting corporate objectives to the individual/team, discussion and questioning techniques, HR policies (particularly in regard to compensation, training/education support), handling salary discussions, equity/legal issues, etc.

Ongoing Training and Support


Establishing support materials and training programs so new employees, team leaders and managers can be trained. Computer/internet/intranet applications are increasingly being used to provide "just-intime" learning programs.

Administration and Support


A well designed and implemented system will be self-supporting. Participation will be voluntary and the "coercion factor" will be minimal. The human resources (human capital) "department" is normally charged with the overall administration and monitoring of the system. Line management is normally responsible for the local scheme management.

Defining Performance

12/29/2013

Dr. Subhash Kakkar

Performance is about factors such as culture, mission, work-flow, goals, environment, knowledge, and skills all working together to produce something that is valuable to the consumer. So performance, regardless of the organization that produces the performance (be it a baseball team, software company, girl scout troop, or law firm), is about outputs or results. There are 3 levels of performance
