Performance Management 2

Took a while to get to writing this but better late than never.  The premise with which I ended my earlier blog that the Performance Management System is “…the hub around which all HR or Talent Management activity revolves…” and hence “…the critical role a well designed system ultimately plays in enhancing organizational capability” is what I want to further elaborate on here.  So to begin, let’s take a look at the chart below:

As the model suggests, the Performance Management System is closely linked to the overall goals and objectives of the company.  In turn, in order to execute and fulfill the business plan it is necessary to have in place the organizational capability and competencies needed ultimately to beat the competition.  And in order to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the team it needs to field to achieve said goals and objectives, a company needs the information generated by a well designed Performance Management System.

The information solicited by the System therefore must be closely tied to the business in both a macro and micro sense.  But it is the micro level that is most critical in how the system is constructed.  The system’s core objective must be to inform the individual about where the goals and objective of the company intersects with the goals and objectives expected of the individual.  This is critical, amongst other things, to driving and maintaining employee engagement.  And further, it is at the micro level that both the individual and company are informed as to how the individual is performing relative to their individual goals and objectives.

Collectively, the data generated at the macro level across the entire employee population informs leadership where they stand in terms of the strengths and weaknesses of their team. And for HR, at the risk of stating the obvious, the information generated by a well designed Performance Management System should provide much of the data that is needed to put into place the people strategy a company needs to achieve its strategic objectives.  Where do we need to add people, what skills or abilities are we lacking, who might we need to replace or train, who should we be tracking and developing for future or immediate leadership roles, etc.  Kind of covers much of what we in HR should be thinking about as the owner’s of the company’s people strategy no?

Obviously the above is just a brief overview where entire books have been written on the subject.  But the real message I am trying to convey is that with the desired goal of HR to stake a claim on playing a strategic role within the organization, it is my belief that a well designed Performance Management Systems can provide the hub around which an integrated people strategy can be developed.
