Define Performance Management in your own words.

Begin by defining Performance Management in your own words. Next, identify three (3) of the performance issues discussed in the assigned readings or that you’ve identified through your independent research. First define each and then discuss the issues of each as they impact the performance review process. How can an HRM mitigate each of the issues?

Don’t forget to include two references.


Question 2

Begin by defining Performance Management in your own words. Next, identify three (3) best practices for a performance evaluation system discussed in the assigned readings. Conduct a bit of independent research and compare or contrast the ideas of at least one reference you find interesting.

As you develop your ideas be sure to include your thoughts about which are the important aspects of an improvement plan and defend your argument by explaining why they are so important.

Don’t forget to include your reference to support your arguments.

Question 3: What haven’t we focused on? (Everyone Responds)

There is a wealth of information available in our text and in the literature! Similar to the situation in Week 3, I cannot possibly ask you questions about every topic and concept – but I want to make sure you know the material. For example, we didn’t talk about the new recommendation that performance reviews be conducted more frequently – as in monthly.

For this last topic, I would ask you to select a topic that sparked your interest this week and summarize your understanding about the topic. I would like to see at least two paragraphs in which you explain your understanding about any aspect of the employee performance management – whether it’s ideas about the process issues, techniques, or procedures. Conduct independent research and include your sources. You get to choose your focus.
