This Episode: How To Design An Evidence Based Performance Management Process

Following on with a look at how to rethink performance management and the appraisal process, Lucinda discusses the practical ways in which you can design your own evidence-based management process, to ensure that any decisions resulting are well thought through.

Key Takeaways

  • A performance management process is promising that if we meet or exceed expectations, and contribute to the company mission, then the company will meet or exceed your career and reward expectations.
  • When we make this promise to our people, we must ensure that it is a promise that works both ways. We need to find a balance to make it work.
  • SMART stands for goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant (Strategically) and Time-bound.
  • In any process that we set up, the goal setting should be at the heart of things. The pinnacle of the performance evaluation process is the appraisal. The reality is, what is the point of an appraisal if there are no goals in place?
