PEOPLE AND PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT
• Analyse the performance appraisal system of an organisation with which you are familiar (e.g. through information from websites, company reports, case studies in academic or professional journals; or from having worked there yourself or from personal contacts).
• Profile the performance appraisal system in relation to the following criteria: system aims, its level of structure and documentation, frequency of appraisal, method/s of appraisal, scheme coverage and whether appraisal criteria or methods vary between levels, how the scheme is monitored, and perceived strengths and problems in scheme operation. (It is recognised that you may not be able to obtain information on all of these)
• Use your profile to identify the scheme’s main strengths and limitations, and to make recommendations for improvement.
