Performance Management System

  1. 1. <ul><li>Performance Management System </li></ul><ul><li>Business role </li></ul><ul><li>job description </li></ul><ul><li>Job skills / knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Individual skills / knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Team business /objectives </li></ul>2. Performance planning 3. Performance development 4. Performance measurement Plan Action Evaluation
  2. 2. Performance Management <ul><li>‘ A process that significantly affects organizational success by having managers and employees work together to set expectations, review results, and reward performance.’ </li></ul><ul><li>‘ A means whereby employees’ work behaviours are aligned with the organization’s goals.’ </li></ul>
  3. 3. Performance appraisal <ul><li>‘ A formal system of periodic review and evaluation of an individual’s or team’s job performance.’ </li></ul><ul><li>Source: Mondy, W., Noe,R.,and Premeaux,S.,(2002) ‘Human Resource Management’, Prentice Hall </li></ul><ul><li>‘ the process by which an employee’s contribution to the organization during a specified period of time is assessed.’ </li></ul><ul><li>Fisher, C., Schoenfeldt,L., and Shaw,J., ‘Human Resource Management’,(1996),pp. 450, Houghton Mifflin Company </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Performance appraisal and performance management </li></ul><ul><li>One current problem which performance appraisal faces is that the term is often used synonymously with that of &quot;performance management” (NHS Scotland,1993). Yet performance management is clearly more than a new name for performance appraisal. </li></ul><ul><li>Fletcher defines performance management as: </li></ul><ul><li>‘ an approach to creating a shared vision of the purpose and aims of the organisation, helping each individual employee understand and recognise their part in contributing to them, and in so doing manage and enhance the performance of both individuals and the organization.’ </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>performance management therefore implies the integration, at both conceptual and practical levels, of what are experienced currently as a series of quite diverse initiatives. These include: </li></ul><ul><li>business planning; </li></ul><ul><li>benchmarking; </li></ul><ul><li>non-pay rewards; </li></ul><ul><li>competence-based education and training; </li></ul><ul><li>clinical audit; </li></ul><ul><li>performance-related pay; </li></ul><ul><li>performance indicators; </li></ul><ul><li>use of assessment and development centres. </li></ul><ul><li>Plus, of course, performance appraisal. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Most appraisal processes have three parts: </li></ul><ul><li>Defining performance- it is preferable to link individual performance to organizational objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Measuring performance: this may include multiple types of performance criteria. </li></ul><ul><li>Feedback and coaching: employees need feedback on their past performance and help to meet the next performance targets. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Purpose of performance appraisal </li></ul><ul><ul><li>improvement in the communication between boss and subordinate through the use of feedback between them </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aids human resource planning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Performance assessments may be useful in predicting the performance of job applicants </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identifies training needs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aids career planning and development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Employed to determine reward and remuneration </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Linked to employee relations decisions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assess employee potential </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Performance appraisal methods </li></ul><ul><li>360-degree feedback – A multirater evaluation that involves input from multiple levels within the firm and external sources as well. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Rating scales – Employees are rated according to defined factors. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Critical incident – consists of a written record of highly favourable and highly unfavourable employee work. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Essay – the rater records a brief narrative describing an employee’s performance. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Work standards – employee’s performance is compared to a predetermined standard level of output. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Performance appraisal methods </li></ul><ul><li>1. Ranking [alternation] – the rater places the appraisees in rank order of overall performance. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Paired comparison – every employee to be rated is paired with and compared to every other subordinate on each trait. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Forced distribution – the rater is required to assign individuals in a work group to a limited number of categories similar to a normal frequency distribution. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Forced-choice – the rater is given a series of statements about an individual and indicates which items are most or least descriptive of the employee. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>5. 360-degree feedback – A multirater evaluation that involves input from multiple levels within the firm and external sources as well. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Behaviourally Anchored Rating Scales – this combines elements of the traditional rating scale and critical incident methods. </li></ul><ul><li>7. Results based systems [Management by Objectives (MBO)] – the manager and the subordinate jointly agree on objectives for the next appraisal period. </li></ul><ul><li>8. Assessment centres - </li></ul>

  12. 12. <ul><li>Individual performance in context </li></ul><ul><li>There is a growing recognition that the work performance of people in organizations comes primarily from within, but is also powerfully affected by the social, economic and political environment in which people work. </li></ul><ul><li>Moncrieff has expressed this in the formula: </li></ul><ul><li>Individual performance = energy × ability × motivation x external factors (Murphy and Cleveland, 1995) </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>The Appraisal interview </li></ul><ul><li>Preparing for the interview (preview job description / appraisals) </li></ul><ul><li>Scheduling the interview (date, time, duration, </li></ul><ul><li>venue) </li></ul><ul><li>Employee’s role </li></ul><ul><li>Interview structure </li></ul><ul><li>Purpose, aims and objectives /qualitative /quantitative </li></ul><ul><li>Overview of the process </li></ul><ul><li>Meeting skills, procedures and practice </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>The Appraisal interview cont. </li></ul><ul><li>Use of praise and criticism </li></ul><ul><li>Computer software </li></ul><ul><li>Concluding the interview </li></ul><ul><li>- review process and meeting </li></ul><ul><li>Source: Mondy, Wayne, Noe, Robert, and Premeaux, Shane, ‘Human Resource Management’,pp.301- 303, Prentice Hall 2002, Dessler,Gary, ‘A Framework for Human Resource Management’, pp.175 –175 Prentice Hall, 2001 and Mabey, Christopher, Salaman, Graeme, and Storey, John, ‘ Human Resource Management’,pp.131 –150, Blackwell 1998 </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Use of praise and criticism </li></ul><ul><li>- Emphasize the positive aspects of performance </li></ul><ul><li>- Criticise the actions, not the person </li></ul><ul><li>- Avoid making any criticism destructive or too personal </li></ul><ul><li>- Do not surprise the employee by bringing up a problem that </li></ul><ul><li>should have been dealt with previously </li></ul><ul><li>- Ask the employee how he or she would change things to </li></ul><ul><li>improve the situation </li></ul><ul><li>- Avoid supplying all the answers </li></ul><ul><li>- Be specific and give alternatives for the criticised behaviour </li></ul><ul><li>- When criticising, concentrate on developing the employee </li></ul><ul><li>- Try to turn the interview into a win-win situation so that all </li></ul><ul><li>concerned gain. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>TQM proponents usually argue for the elimination of performance appraisals. They claim that the organisation is a system of interrelated parts and that an employee’s performance is more a function of factors such as training, communication, tools, and supervision than of his or her own motivation. </li></ul><ul><li>A TQM-based performance system would include: </li></ul><ul><li>An appraisal scale that contains relatively few performance categories and avoids a forced distribution(Lawler,1994). </li></ul><ul><li>Objective ways to measure results, avoiding subjective criteria such as teamwork and integrity (Markowich, 1995). </li></ul><ul><li>A determination about whether any performance deficiency is a result of employee motivation, inadequate training, or factors such as poor supervision that are outside the employee’s control. </li></ul><ul><li>360-degree feedback from a number of different sources, not just supervisors but internal and possibly external “customers” of the employee as well (Antonioni, 1994). </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>A case study of Hoshin Kanri practice at Xerox (UK) reveals the relationship between organisational strategy and appraisals (Barry Witcher and Rosie Butterworth ,1999) . </li></ul><ul><li>Hoshin Kanri is a form of TQM-based strategic management ; it provides a link between strategic intent and its implementation in daily management . </li></ul><ul><li>Xerox is an exemplar of Hoshin Kanri best practice. Key features include Xerox's use of vital few programmes: </li></ul><ul><li>the link with employee appraisals </li></ul><ul><li>an active role for a network of quality managers </li></ul><ul><li>a participative form of deployment </li></ul><ul><li>a mature form of total quality management </li></ul><ul><li>the use of a self-assessment model to manage the business </li></ul><ul><li>a structured system of review . </li></ul><ul><li>While implementation has been difficult, key benefits have been </li></ul><ul><li>transparency and a common language for involving everybody in </li></ul><ul><li>the management of strategy . </li></ul>

  20. 20. <ul><li>Dell case </li></ul><ul><li>Overall, and it holds 28.8% of the U.S. consumer market(2005), up </li></ul><ul><li>from 28.2% a year ago, according to researcher IDC. However, a </li></ul><ul><li>sagging reputation could slow sales, jeopardizing the company's </li></ul><ul><li>plan to reach $80 billion in revenues by 2008. In the most recent </li></ul><ul><li>Quarter(2005), Dell missed its sales target, one reason its stock </li></ul><ul><li>has dropped 18%, to $34, since the start of the year. </li></ul><ul><li>In the last three months of 1991 Dell produced 49,269 personal </li></ul><ul><li>computers . In 2004 ,during peak demand, they could exceed that </li></ul><ul><li>number by lunchtime. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Executives study the assembly process on a regular basis. They </li></ul><ul><li>wheel in video equipment to examine a work team's every </li></ul><ul><li>movement, looking for any extraneous bends or wasted twists. </li></ul><ul><li>Designers give one another high-fives for eliminating even a </li></ul><ul><li>single screw from a product, because that represents a saving of </li></ul><ul><li>roughly four seconds per machine built - the time they've </li></ul><ul><li>calculated it takes an employee, on average, to use the pneumatic </li></ul><ul><li>screwdriver dangling above his or her head. </li></ul><ul><li>Computer software clocks the assembly-line performance of </li></ul><ul><li>workers, whether they're putting together PC's or the servers and </li></ul><ul><li>storage equipment that Dell sells to large companies. The most </li></ul><ul><li>able are declared &quot;master builders&quot; and then videotaped so that </li></ul><ul><li>others may watch and learn. The weak are told that it takes a </li></ul><ul><li>special set of talents to cut it on the Dell factory floor - and shown </li></ul><ul><li>the door. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;I tell employees all the time that we're in a race on costs,&quot; said </li></ul><ul><li>Dick Hunter,the Dell executive who oversees manufacturing in the </li></ul><ul><li>United States. &quot;When we lose the race on costs to Asia or </li></ul><ul><li>wherever, that puts our own security in jeopardy.&quot; </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>This year (2004), their goal was a 30 percent increase in the </li></ul><ul><li>number of machines that the company's factories spit out. </li></ul><ul><li>Among the recent changes was a rerouting of cable so that it no </li></ul><ul><li>longer had to be laced over and under other parts, and the </li></ul><ul><li>decision to replace L-shaped tables with a single workbench, to </li></ul><ul><li>avoid time-consuming twists. A decision was also made to apply </li></ul><ul><li>one fewer sticker per machine. &quot;We're going to get there by saving </li></ul><ul><li>four seconds here, and four seconds there,&quot; Mr. Myhand (day-shift </li></ul><ul><li>manager of Dell's flagship factory, Austin Texas) said. The </li></ul><ul><li>labour costs of a PC are &quot;roughly 10 bucks,&quot; Mr. Rollins (Dell's chief </li></ul><ul><li>executive ) said, meaning that payroll costs account for maybe 2 </li></ul><ul><li>percent of the overall cost of the typical Dell PC. Five years ago, it </li></ul><ul><li>took two workers 14 minutes to build a PC; it now takes a single </li></ul><ul><li>worker roughly five minutes to do the same. </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>In ternal support systems </li></ul><ul><li>In 2000, when the company's flagship plant opened, no </li></ul><ul><li>structure in it was more than maybe 10 feet high. Four </li></ul><ul><li>years later, the plant is now laced with triple-decker </li></ul><ul><li>conveyor belts that rise as much as 40 feet above the </li></ul><ul><li>factory floor. Black bins filled with parts are dispatched </li></ul><ul><li>via these belts and then lowered mechanically to any </li></ul><ul><li>one of the hundreds of employees who assemble the </li></ul><ul><li>machines according to each customer's specifications. </li></ul><ul><li>The completed machines are then transported by </li></ul><ul><li>conveyor belt to a shipping area, where they are boxed </li></ul><ul><li>largely by robots , which were installed only recently </li></ul><ul><li>and routed to dozens of idling big trucks. Typically, the </li></ul><ul><li>trucks drive away with full loads 30 minutes after they </li></ul><ul><li>arrive. </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>Vertical co-ordination </li></ul><ul><li>A dozen years ago, Dell stored roughly 30 days </li></ul><ul><li>of inventory - the outer casings, motherboards, </li></ul><ul><li>Intel chips and other components needed to </li></ul><ul><li>feed the beast - in warehouses around the </li></ul><ul><li>Austin area. The company, based just north of </li></ul><ul><li>Austin in Round Rock, Tex., no longer operates </li></ul><ul><li>any warehouses ; instead, it requires suppliers </li></ul><ul><li>to stock 8 to 10 days' worth of goods no further </li></ul><ul><li>than 90 minutes from its assembly plants . </li></ul>
  25. 26. <ul><li>Questions </li></ul><ul><li>Define performance appraisal and briefly discuss its basic </li></ul><ul><li>Purposes </li></ul><ul><li>What are the basic steps in the performance appraisal </li></ul><ul><li>process? </li></ul><ul><li>What aspect of a person’s performance should an </li></ul><ul><li>organisation evaluate? </li></ul><ul><li>Who should be involved in performance appraisals and </li></ul><ul><li>why? </li></ul><ul><li>Outline the various problems associated with performance </li></ul><ul><li>appraisal? </li></ul><ul><li>What are the characteristics of an effective appraisal </li></ul><ul><li>system? </li></ul>
  26. 27. <ul><li>Conducting an effective appraisal is always important. </li></ul><ul><li>However, an appraisal can have life and death implications </li></ul><ul><li>when you are dealing with unstable employee, particularly </li></ul><ul><li>those who must be dismissed. An employee of a U.S. Postal </li></ul><ul><li>Service station was recently terminated. The employee </li></ul><ul><li>returned and shot and killed several managers who had </li></ul><ul><li>been instrumental in the former employee’s dismissal. It </li></ul><ul><li>transpired this person had a history as a troublemaker and </li></ul><ul><li>that many clues regarding his unstable nature over many </li></ul><ul><li>years had been ignored. </li></ul><ul><li>Could a company with an effective appraisal process have missed so many signals of instability over several years? Why or why not? </li></ul><ul><li>What safeguards would you build into your appraisal process to avoid missing such potentially tragic signs of instability and danger? </li></ul><ul><li>What would you do if confronted during an appraisal interview by someone who began making threats regarding his or her use of firearms? </li></ul>
