Implementation of a Performance Management Program
Consider you are an HR manager within a relatively small organization of approximately
65 employees. Recently, there have been a number of concerns voiced about managing
employee performance and evaluating it against the goals of the organization. It has been
a challenge to align roles and responsibilities within the organization, and there are
growing concerns that the problem will worsen as the company continues to evolve and
expand. As a result, you have been tasked with the design and implementation of a
performance management program. Through your experience and research you have
come up with a design that you feel allows for both the consistency and flexibility that a
growing company requires in a performance management program.
The next hurdle involves the implementation of the program. How long do you have to
complete the implementation? Whose buy-in do you need before the program can go
live? In what order would you inform all entities of the details of the new program? What
steps could you take to ensure a successful implementation?
In this week’s Assignment you will analyze the process of implementing a performance
management program within an organization.
