Performance Management
Appraisal and the Appraisal interview

How to make an Appraisal System deliver its objectives and add value for stakeholders.

This programme looks at Performance Management and the role of appraisal, or performance development reviews and their role in adding significant value to an organisation.

Lack of clarity about where the appraisal process fits in to the performance management system, poor or inadequate training for appraisers and appraisees and unreal expectations or commitments about personal development can all spell the death knell for the appraisal process in an organisation, leaving people de-motivated and under-valued and performance suffering. Conversely, a well structured programme with commitment from top management, clarity and accountability on roles and responsibilities, comprehensive skills training with open two way communication as well as a consistent approach across an organisation will deliver enormous measurable organisational benefits.

Who should attend?
People in organisations who have a responsibility for appraisal and the development of performance management.
