Performance Management

What is Performance Management?

Performance management is the process of creating a work environment or setting in which people are enabled to perform to the best of their abilities. It is a whole work system that begins when a job is defined, as needed, and ends when an employee leaves your organization.


A performance management system includes the following actions.


  • Develop clear job descriptions.
  • Select appropriate people with an appropriate selection process.
  • Negotiate requirements and accomplishment-based performance standards, outcomes, and measures.
  • Provide effective orientation, education, and training.
  • Provide on-going coaching and feedback.
  • Conduct quarterly performance development discussions.
  • Design effective compensation and recognition systems that reward people for their contributions.
  • Provide promotional/career development opportunities for staff.
  • Assist with exit interviews to understand WHY valued employees leave the organization.


Most of us believe that the best way to motivate ourselves and others is with external rewards like money – the carrot-and-stick approach.  That’s a mistake.
