Performance management is often considered the bane of human capital and talent management. We believe a significant part of the problem is that performance management has been reduced to the formal administrative system, which is traditionally event-based, intermittent, and focused on “checking the box”. Managers have lost sight of everyday activities such as communicating clear task or project expectations, setting short-term objectives and deadlines, and giving continual guidance as work is planned and executed. We will discuss an evidence-based approach for enhancing the ROI of performance management. Additionally, two examples of ongoing PM change efforts will be presented.
