Strategic Executioner - Managers at the centre of the Performance Management System


Published on … is a blog focused on Compensation & Benefits.

I write 3 times per week, on various C&B, Performance Management, Global Mobility and Governance topics.

I delivered this presentation at the Human Assets conference in Dubai in May 2012. Its premise is simple : to get better performance from your organisation, you don't need to lengthen or shorten your deadlines for appraisals, you don't need a new HRIS, you don't need to increase the on-target bonus or strengthen the link between pay and performance. You need to place line managers at the centre of your performance management system.

The presentation centers on the reasons why managers are so important for performance, motivation and engagement of your workforce.
