Performance Management


Performance management is about creating a culture that encourages the continuous improvement of business processes and of individuals’ skills, behaviour and contributions. You’ll find here information on managing performance, performance measurement, poor performance, performance indicators, objective setting, SMART objectives, performance improvement, performance reviews, performance appraisal, feedback, self appraisal, team appraisal and appraisal training.

There are other pages for competences and performance related pay. Business performance is on the corporate strategy page.

Looking for an older report on performance management which is no longer on the website? The full-text of all our research publications and surveys from 1999 onwards is available to CIPD members from our HR and L&D database.
