Abstract

Performance management is widely regarded as an important tool for managing people at all levels of an organisation. However, despite its widespread use, it remains a fairly imprecise term and performance management processes manifest themselves in many different forms. In general terms the premise is that there is no one right way of managing performance, the approach adopted must depend on the context of the organisation, its culture, structure, technology the views of stakeholders and the type of people involved.
It is equally regarded as a natural process of management, not a system or technique to ensure same. It is also about managing within the context of a business in its internal and external environment. Best practice performance management processes are part of a holistic approach to managing for performance, which is the concern of everyone in the organisation.
This dissertation explores both the subject matter in general and focuses on one such performance management system adopted in a large American multinational organisation in Waterford. Through the use of both qualitative and quantitative analysis the author sets out to determine if the introduction of a new electronic multi sign off performance management process, both captures and promotes what is generally considered as being an effective and rewarding organisational tool for all concerned.
