This course will be ideally suited for experienced and new managers and team leaders with responsibility for managing and reporting performance.
Performance management is all about how a business controls its resources in terms of its personnel. If used well it can highlight those strengths and weaknesses as well as the opportunities and threats to the business plan and assist managers to focus resources including their time, effort, energy, funding and systems into those areas where most required.
This course will enable delegates to develop an understanding of performance management, how it is inherently linked to business success, how determining and agreeing performance targets and goals can improve overall attitudes and staff commitment, and what processes are needed for continuous improvement and development. The course will explore methods to enable managers to install performance management systems and to define how they will be used and what outcomes should be expected.
