When Performance Management is conducted successfully, organisations see a reduction in staff turnover, an alignment in the day-to-day activities of staff with organisation goals, and sustainable gains in productivity.
But too often, staff are unclear about how they can write and set goals, prioritise them, and put them into action. And no matter how effective the organisation's Performance Management system is, if the goals, targets, and objectives are poorly written, the chance of improving performance is drastically reduced.
However, if staff can learn a simple method for writing their own Performance Plans, they begin thinking seriously about their own development, their learning needs, and their careers - and to pro-actively suggest ways of overcoming the complications they discover when reaching for those goals.
Writing Effective Performance Plans is an online learning program that trains your staff in the skills necessary to take control - and to make the process of Performance Management simple and effective.
Writing Effective Performance Plans steps the learner through the process of writing the Plan, including:
A plan is still only a plan if you then don't learn how to measure your performance, document key events, summarise your achievements, and examine the needs you may have for on-going development. These skills ensure that plans become a reality.
Writing Effective Performance Plans makes Performance Management accessible for your staff in a way that was difficult to achieve before. Now staff can understand the difference between a good goal and a vague goal - and how to write and achieve good goals.
And, because they've written their own goals and had them signed off by management, their motivation to achieve their plans increases 100%.
With Writing Effective Performance Plans, the effects of Performance Planning can be seen throughout the entire organisation.
At the completion of the program, participants download a Checklist to use as a ready reference as they develop Performance Plans that integrate with the objectives and targets of their organisation in the real world.
