hi does anyone know what a bell curve is and how exactly is it used in the PMS process? melissa
BELL CURVE This question has been answered in the PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SECTION. regards LEO LINGHAM
Hi Melissa.
Let me give you my two-cents worth:
A bell curve is a theoretical dsitribution of scores across a given population. Applied to PMS, this means that the performance of the majority of a given population will tend to gravitate towards the center i.e., average while the extremes would comprise of either the poor performers or excellent ones. This simply means that you can't have 100% stars in a team; there has to be the so-so (average) guys and low performers. The curve is mostly used as a control mechanism.
Hope this helps.
