About the course

Performance Management After this course you will be able to establish and manage a performance culture, determine Key Results Areas (KRAs), set objectives and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and establish the right competencies and behaviors for all the roles in your organization. You will design and define the right performance management system to support your organization’s goals and business objectives, and encourage the development of each individual employee.

Performance Appraisal Individual performance appraisals help you manage the performance of each employee in your organization. However, unless you clearly link a performance appraisal to corporate goals and see it as part of the responsibilities of an effective manager, it can be nothing more than a tick-box paper exercise.
