Performance Management (Benchmarking)
Performance Measurement and Management can be applied to any aspect of the operations of the organisation right from the daily employee report to annual performance review of the entire organisation with the objective to have a consistent and long term based approach to performance evaluation. It will also become important to ensure that the expectations are clearly defined in objective terms that are easily understood and also practical which should be arrived through a participative approach. In this process the organisation can actually translate the business strategy and plans into achievable and measurable objectives that are understood both by the performer and the reviewer.
