Performance Management and How to Use it to Create a Culture of Excellence in Your Human Resource
As a matter of fact, you must have at one time been to such organizational meetings where people get to make some promises of significance to the organization but at the end of it all, they never follow on these to see them actualized. For some, it has been a habit of committing to a deadline of some kind knowing well enough that they will not be able to deliver on them but they are sitting pretty knowing that there will be no one to hold them accountable for the same at the end of the day.
One recent study actually found out that a good number of the corporate leaders identify with the problem of getting the right things done as one of the most significant problems that their companies face. Thanks to these, we have seen the fact that one of the ingredients that has been missing in a number of organizations yet so important is that of accountability.
These can be partly attributed to the fact of the fast paced nature of the business environment as it is today. By and large, there is so much demanding our attention and time and as a result of this, we happen to be unable to keep with the pressures of each day much less get done much of the things that we may have committed to.
Even though this may be so, it is a fact that the lack of accountability may as well be as a result of the lack of some form of a performance management system, formal or informal. By and large, where such a system isn’t in place, one that will be as clearly aligned to the organizational goals and objectives, it can be quite a challenge if not totally impossible for you to engage your team members to follow through on the right things and have them done in a timely manner.
By and large, if at all you are looking for a solution to help you build such a culture of organization accountability in your setup, then you need to consider it wise and critical for you to have in place a structured performance management process and these indeed go a long way in supporting whatever ongoing efforts there are towards these. The performance management systems help with the need to have each and everyone in your team be aligned to the strategic goals and objectives and as well focuses their attention on the things that need to be done and by what dates. They as well help management keep track of what needs to be done, the priority areas and as such without them, management can as well easily get off track and mislead the entire organization, thinking that everything is important.
