Effectively controlling what’s going on in your organization to ensure you get the results you want.
When companies grow in size, they add more revenue, more people, more customers, and more complexity. As a company gets larger and more complex, it becomes increasingly difficult to control. One of the critical challenges facing growing companies is the need to be able to control what is going on.
Organizations hire people with the expectation that they are going to help achieve the company’s goals. Expectations alone are not enough. Companies need a way to improve the odds of attaining their goals.
Performance management systems are designed to control activity. Organizations need a set of processes and tools to help manage the performance of people in the organization. Specifically, we work with organizations to design these processes to increase the likelihood that people will behave in ways that help to achieve organizational goals.
A performance management system is intended to help manage the performance of an organization at all levels: individuals, teams, departments, divisions, and the organization as a whole.
We work with companies to design performance management systems to perform three main tasks:
1 To motivate and influence people to make decisions and take actions in a way consistent with company goals.
2 To coordinate the efforts of different parts of the organization.
3 To measure performance by providing information about organizational results and individual performance.
Our approach to performance management design is highly customized to meet the unique needs of each organization. Before we begin design work on any performance management system, an assessment of the existing system is performed at the organizational, divisional, departmental, and individual levels. We work with you to determine whether your current system has all the necessary components and evaluate the effectiveness of each component in the system.
One of the most important aspects to consider when designing a performance management system is the organization’s stage of growth. This factor determines the appropriate level of control for an organization.
A properly designed performance management system gives an organization the control it needs to deal with the complexity that comes with business growth and success.
