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.
