Performance Measurement: Realistic?

How practical and realistic is performance measurement in organisations. In most cases, it looks very juicy on paper yet in practice is does not appear to be producing the expected outcomes.

Performance Measurement in the Public Service

Is it practical to have a performance appraisal system which is tied to development and productivity?

  Ceferino Dulay, Jr.

Performance Appraisal System

Appraisal systems are really tied to productivity and development:
- First PRODUCTIVITY which is tied to the desired end result in, say, some project. Here, a SWOT analysis can be done so that the person can identify what areas of Strength were used effectively, areas for improvement (W) that need to be addressed, Opportunities that surfaced and used or disregarded and Threats that were addressed effectively.
- With this analysis, a focused and result-oriented DEVELOPMENT program can then be designed to reinforce and find other areas of application for strengths and a training program coupled with actual application for weaknesses. Development can also include how to identify and use opportunities or how to turn situations into opportunities and how to address threats or reduce their impact to performance.
Unfortunately, there are still managers that miss the development part, so that the full potential of the performance appraisal system is not realized.
