Course Details

Let's be honest, people hate performance reviews. As a much-maligned part of management, many managers and many more employees do not like performance appraisal. But, is it performance management itself that's detested or is it the method? Designed, implemented and managed well, performance management is an effective tool for organizations, managers and employees.

In this course we examine the foundation and purpose for evaluating employee performance, its link to organizational strategy and goals, effective design and implementation, and trends. Students learn that performance management is not an annual event but an ongoing process. Through lecture, textbook, case study, real-world assignments, and group discussion we focus on the design and structure of performance appraisal systems with a special emphasis on constructive performance management.

As we will view issues from both employee and managerial perspectives, this course will be of value to all individuals regardless of position within the organization. All those with an interest in the complexities of performance management will benefit from the theoretical discussions and practical applications that we explore.
