This is totally inadequate. © Robert Bacal, 1993, 1998 Performance Management - Why Doesn’t It Work - Page 33 An Effectiveness Enhancement System must provide for regular communication, formal, and informal, so that problems can be identified as they occur, and remedial action taken. Regular communication is also important because the manager is expected to be aware O{ and knowledgeable about the activities of staff. 13. The Effectiveness Enhancement System must provide a forum for the discussion of factors that impede success regardless of whether these factors are measurable or easily measured.

During the discussion, Rebecca “contracts” with the employee. Both parties agree to bidirectional expectations. At review time, both sets of expectations are examined. Comment This approach clearly establishes the principle that effectiveness can come about only as a result of effective bi-directional communication, and cooperation between manager and employee. By eliciting reviews of her own ability to help the employee, Rebecca is trying to remove the “I’m judge, you listen” climate that is often established in traditional performance management systems.

If we were to change the present performance management system so it would be more useful, how do you think we should do it? What do you need from supervisors and managers so that you can continue to get better at your job? How can we use performance management to increase communication around here? Step 5- Bringing It All Together After gathering information from yourself, supervisors and employees, you are going to have to use this information to decide what your new system is going to look like.
