Designing A Performance Management System

Your performance management system should be:

job-related practical have measurable standards Perhaps the most important design consideration is to develop a process that is practical and easy to understand and use. The focus should be on the results of the performance management process - effective and motivated staff - not the steps of the process.

When developing a new performance management process, use a committee made up of employees and managers. A collaborative approach will increase employee buy-in, understanding and support of the process.

Once the process has been developed, communicate with all staff about the purpose and the steps in the performance management process.

You should be prepared to make adjustments to your new system as necessary.

Different Types of Performance Management Systems There are a variety of ways to measure performance including:

Self Appraisal: the employee is asked to evaluate his/her own work Peer Appraisal: staff of equal rank within the organization are asked to evaluate the employee Team Appraisal: similar to peer appraisals; employees who work as part of a team are asked to evaluate the team's work Assessment Centre: the employee is assessed by professional assessors using several types of evaluation such as work simulations and actual activities 360-Degree or Full Circle Appraisal: the employee's work is reviewed by gathering input from representatives of all the groups the employee interacts with such as supervisor, peers, subordinates and clients.

Management-by-Objectives: the employee's achievement of work objectives that are set in collaboration with his/her supervisor are assessed.

Combination of Methods: Some organizations combine different methods into their performance management process. In particular some organizations include an evaluation of competencies - the knowledge, skills and abilities that distinguish superior performance. Establishing competencies for performance management in an organization requires careful thought. Without careful preparation, evaluating competencies can be very subjective.

In the voluntary sector, 360-degree appraisals are sometimes used for evaluating the Executive Director. Management-by-objectives is an effective approach to performance management for all other employees.

Because it's the most practical system for most non-profit organizations, we will be focusing in this section of the website on Management-by-Objectives.

Management-by-Objectives Performance management using a management-by-objectives (results-based) approach has three phases:

Phase 1 - Planning a work plan for the next year is developed; measures for assessing progress are established.

Phase 2 - Monitoring progress toward the goals identified in the work plan is monitored; the plan is adjusted if required; corrective action is taken if necessary.

Phase 3 - Reviewing at the end of the performance management cycle the manager and employee meet to document the work of the past year; accomplishments and shortfalls relative to the work plan are summarized using a performance management form; a new performance management cycle begins.

You may get better performance is only because you ignore integrity, you trade it off for performance. Now, if you do it consciously, by accepting the risk it's one thing; but the problem is that most practitioners are not even aware that there's a risk, they all think that there is no price to be paid for denormalization.
Poor performance is due to physical implementation factors: physical design, DBMS, hardware, network loads, etc. Normalization by definition has nothing to do with it, it's impossible. The point is that users should stop blaming normalization and trying to avoid it and should demand better products and learn proper design. As long as they think the way you do, they will never get anything better.
