Performance Management System

Our topic of research is “Performance Management


“Degree of accomplishment of the task that make up an employee’s job”. It reflects how well an employee is fulfilling the requirements of a job. For example, a student may exert a great deal of effort in preparing for an examination and still make a poor grade. In such a case the effort expended was high, yet the performance was poor.

“Process of evaluating and communicating an employee, how he or she performing to job and establishing a plan for improvements”. Effort should be enhanced if good performance is positively reinforced. The task perception of employee should be clarified through establishing a plan for improvement.


Performance Management System

The history of performance appraisal is quite brief. Its roots in the early 20th century can be traced to Taylor's pioneering Time and Motion studies. But this is not very helpful, for the same may be said about almost everything in the field of modern human resources management. There is, says Dulewicz (1989), "... a basic human tendency to make judgments about those one is working with, as well as about oneself." Appraisal, it seems, is both inevitable and universal. In the absence of a carefully structured system of appraisal, people will tend to judge the work performance of others, including subordinates, naturally, informally and arbitrarily.

Performance appraisal may be defined as a structured formal interaction between a subordinate and supervisor, that usually takes the form of a periodic interview (annual or semi-annual), in which the work performance of the subordinate is examined and discussed, with a view to identifying weaknesses and strengths as well as opportunities for improvement and skills development.

Performance appraisal works as an important component of performance management system. In professional appraisal practice expectation from the employees, their performance against expectation and method to gauge the performance is established and communicated. There is a widespread belief that the purpose of the employee appraisal is deciding salary increment and promotion, as most of


like: Employee training need identification Employee knowledge and experience capture Identification of opportunities for improvements Motivating the employees Developing professional culture      ELEMENTS OF PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL SYSTEM Performance appraisal elements are those factors on which the appraisal system is based. However performance appraisal can serve Varity of organizational needs very effectively.Performance Management System the organizations employ it only for that purpose. Mostly there are to categories of factors which are mostly used in the appraisal system which are as follows: • • Hygiene performance factors (HPF) Differentiating contribution factors (DCF) HYGIENE PERFORMANCE FACTORS: Those elements which achieving business process goals. example • • • Initiative Planning and communication Coordination and follow up For 5 .

for some organizations. Numerous methods have been designed to measure the quantity and quality of employees’ job performance.Performance Management System DIFFERENTIATING CONTRIBUTION FACTORS: Those elements which cover the contribution of employees that helps the organization to excel. To know the merits and demerits of different methods of PA. all the approaches to appraisal can be classified into I) Past-oriented methods II) Future-oriented methods Each group has several techniques as shown below: PAST-ORIENTED METHODS: • Rating scales • Checklists • Forced choice method • Forced distribution method • Critical incident method • Behaviorally anchored scales • Field review method 6 . None should be dismissed or accepted as appropriate except as they relate to the particular needs of the organization or of a particular type or employees. 2. Broadly. To know different methods of performance appraisal. The last to be addressed in the process of designing an appraisal program is to determine methods of evaluation. Each of the method discussed could be effective for some purposes. METHODS OF APPRAISAL LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 1.

7 . Of such methods. In order to bring about a balance between these two. most traditional methods emphasize either on the task or the worker's personality. while making an appraisal.Performance Management System • Performance tests and observations • Annual confidential reports • Essay method • Cost accounting approach • Comparative evaluation approach FUTURE ORIENTED METHODS: • Management by objectives • 360-Degree appraisal • Psychological appraisals • Assessment centers NEWER OR MODERN METHODS OF APPRAISAL As we have seen. the most important are:  Appraisal by Results or Management by Objectives.  Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales.  Assessment Center Method. modern methods have been developed.

and use these measures as guides for operating the unit and assessing the contribution of each of its members. MBO seemed to emerge as the dominant tool for organizational management. The application of this technique often succeeds or fails because of its interpretations. It meets this need by providing opportunities for participation in goal setting process. MBO is potentially a powerful philosophy of managing and an effective way. The causes of failure were in the implementation. they were not in the basic procedure. DEFINITION: ‘‘The system of management by objectives can be described as a process whereby the superior and subordinate managers of an organization jointly identify its common goals.Performance Management System MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES (MBO) Peter Drucker has evolved this method. It provides responsibility and accountability and recognizes that employees have needs for achievement and self-fulfillment.’’ During the late 1960s and early 1970s. But many applications met with failure. and many discard it as a theoretical idea that could not be applied in practical situations. 8 . define each individual's major areas of responsibility in terms of the results expected of him. which matters the most. OBJECTIVES OF MBO: It is result –oriented or it is the performance. The management by objectives concept is a basic technique. The concept was challenged.

Role conflict arises when a person has to face conflicting demands from two or more supervisors. It is hard to think about the results of work rather than the work itself. energy and form. and role ambiguity is a situation when a person is uncertain as to how he will be evaluated. Since target setting itself requires planning hence this process aids to planning  MBO identifies problems better and early.  Since MBO focuses on providing clear targets to be achieved and the order of priority it helps to reduce role conflict and ambiguity. DRAWBACKS:  MBO programmed takes a great deal of time. 9 .Performance Management System BENEFITS OF MBO:  MBO helps and increase employee motivation because it helps to relate an individual’s goals with the organizational goals. Frequent review sessions help in this.completing on the part of managers.  MBO forces mangers to PLAN. or what he has to achieve.  It is very often difficult to apply MBO concepts to work habits.  Managers are more likely to compete with themselves than with others.  Since it helps to identify performance deficiencies and enables the management and the employees to understand the training needs.  Subordinates may try to set the lowest possible targets to avoid not meeting them. Since my targets are to be achieved by me only and hence attempts to better self performance becomes important.

360-degree feedback. Results are also used by some organizations in making administrative decisions." 10 . feedback from external interested reports. Feedback is provided by subordinates. such as pay or promotion. It also includes a self-assessment and. the 360 assessment is for evaluation purposes." where managers are given feedback by their direct "traditional appraisal. or sources such as customers and suppliers with or other "upward the stakeholders. OBJECTIVES OF 360-DEGREE FEEDBACK: The results from 360-degree feedback are often used by the person receiving the feedback to plan training and development. in some cases. "360" refers to the 360 degrees in a circle. peers. multisource feedback. also known as multirater feedback. When this is the case. is feedback that comes from all around an employee. a It may be contrasted performance feedback." where employees are most often reviewed only by their managers. and supervisors.Performance Management System 360-Degree Feedback DEFINITION: In human resources . and is sometimes called a "360-degree review. or multisource assessment. with an individual figuratively in the center of the circle.

the employee understands how his decisions directly affect others. Ask the customer to provide situations in which expectations were not met. For example. Communications training would focus on communicating with subordinates. 11 . You should conduct one-on-one meetings or surveys with those providing input. Do not disclose the names of subordinates providing feedback.Performance Management System BENEFITS OF 360-DEGREE FEEDBACK:  The employee gets a well-rounded perspective of his performance.  Customers can be internal and external. met or exceeded.  When the same feedback is from multiple sources.  Using 360-degree feedback provides a better perspective of training needs. with the the employee but might speak communicate well manager condescendingly to subordinates. the employee does not feel he is being targeted by one person.  Subordinates can provide feedback about managers without fear of retaliation. Through 360 feedbacks.

STEPS IN BARS: The procedure for BARS is usually five stepped. RATING OF LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE FOR EACH INCIDENT: In this step the rating of level of performance for each incident is measure.Performance Management System BEHAVIORALLY ANCHORED RATING SCALES (BARS) This is a new appraisal technique. It sets clear standards. average performance and so forth. 12 . Results are sufficiently accurate. RELOCATE INCIDENTS: Any groups of people who also have knowledge then relocate the incidents. which has been recently developed. The use of this method may be useful in giving feedback to the persons being appraised. The technique is not biased by the evaluation of the rater. since it is done by person’s expert in the particular field. DEVELOPMENT OF THE FINAL INSTRUMENT: A set of incidents is used as “behavior anchors” for the performance dimensions. GENERATE CRITICAL INCIDENTS: Person who have the knowledge of a particular job are asked to describe situations or incidents whereby the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of an individual’s performance can be judged. The critical incidents along the scale help to clarify what is meant by “extremely good performance. DEVELOP PERFORMANCE DIMENSIONS: The incidents are then clustered into smaller sets of performance dimensions and each dimension is the defined.

13 . both individually and collectively.Performance Management System THE ASSESSMENT CENTER METHOD The assessment center concept was initially applied to military situations by the German Army in 1930s. FEATURES: Some of the other features of this system are:  The use of situational exercises (such as in-basket exercise. a role-playing incident and leaderless group discussion).  The members prepare a summary report. LIMITATIONS: The major limitations are:    It is a time consuming process. and a feedback on face-to-face basis is administered to all the candidates who ask for it.the most important feature of this method is job related simulations or mock situations.  Evaluations are drawn from experienced managers with proven ability at different levels of management. The evaluators observe and evaluate participants as they perform activities commonly found in these higher-level jobs. A relatively expensive process. more than acceptable.  They evaluate all employees. These simulations involve characteristics that managers feel are important for job success. less than acceptable and unacceptable. and each candidate is given one of the four categories. Assessment center rating are said to be strongly influenced by participants interpersonal skills.

This is the simplest method of separating the most efficient from the least efficient: and relatively easy to develop and use. With this technique. The relative position of each man is tested in terms of his numerical rank. That is the ranking of a man in a work group is done against that of another.e. The task of ranking individuals is difficult when a large number of persons are rated. PAIRED COMPARISON TECHNIQUE This is an improvement over the straight ranking method. The number of 14 . By this technique. persons are tested in order of merit and placed in a simple grouping. It may also be done by ranking a person on his job performance against that of another member of a competitive group by placing him as number one or two or three in total group i. each employee is compared with all other persons in pairs one at a time. LIMITATIONS: In practice it is very difficult to compare a single individual with human beings having varying behavior.Performance Management System STRAIGHT RANKING METHOD It is the oldest and the simplest method of performance appraisal. by which the man and his performance are considered as an entity by the rater. The method only tells us how a man stands in relation to the others in the group but does not indicate how much better or worse he is than another. judgment is easier and simpler than with the ordinary ranking method.

which other rating methods impose. These two facts eliminate the restrictions on natural judgments. GRAPHIC RATING SCALE This is the most commonly used method of performance appraisal. wherein the rater places a mark somewhere along a continuum. Under it a printed forms. regularity of attendance. leadership offered. specific goals achieved. analytical ability emotional ability. These numbers yield the rank order of the entire group.Performance Management System times each individual is compared with another is tallied on a piece of paper. are included enthusiasm. the responsibility assumed. To ensure the success of this method. these factors are: employee characteristics and employee contribution. one for each person to be rated. loyalty. and co-ordination. dependability. Scott’’ to get the judgment of superiors on the subjects. In the employee contribution are included the quantity and quality of work. This method was introduced by ‘Walter D. cooperativeness. versatility etc. such qualities as ability. imitativeness. FEATURES: The two important features of this system are: The person who is making the judgment is freed from direct” quantitative” terms in making his decision of merit on any quality: and the person who is making the judgment can make as fine a discrimination of merit as he chooses. In employee characteristics industry. According to Jucius. attitude. creative decisiveness. one should: 15 . leadership. attitude towards superiors and associates. These traits are the evaluated on a continuous scale.

The following statements are examples of the type of statement that are used. The rater is asked to indicate which of the four phrases is most and least descriptive of the employee. the index of the extent to which a quality is valued) Pair the statement or the trait name and preference value.  Establish the discrimination value (i. the rating elements are several sets of pair phrases or adjectives (usually sets of four phrases two of which are positive. Pair high and low preference values forming an item. FORCED CHOICE DESCRIPTION METHOD This method evolved after a great deal of research conducted for the military services during World War II.         Makes little effort from his own side Organizes the work well Lacks the ability to make people feel at ease Has a cool temperament Is punctual and careful Is dishonest and disloyal Is hard worker and co-operative In the above. phrases are both favorable and unfavorable. It tries to check a rater’s tendency to give consistently high or low ratings to all employees. 16 . the unfavorable ones get no credit. two negative) relating to job proficiency or personal qualifications.e. Under this method.Performance Management System Obtain the descriptions of persons at two extremes of the performance scale:  Analyze these descriptions into simple behavioral qualities and present these either as a statement or as a trait. while the favorable ones get a plus credit.

Such tests are expensive to develop. this method is not clearly superior to traditional rating methods. the results of evaluation do not prove useful for counseling and trained purposes because the rater is ignorant of how he is evaluating the individual. as only one of the favorable and unfavorable is related to success or failure on the job. he also does not know how ‘high’ or ‘low’ he is evaluating the individual because he has no access to the scoring key. CRITICAL INCIDENT METHOD This method was developed following research conducted by the armed forces in the United States during World War II. Most of the raters become irritated with the test because they are not being trusted.Performance Management System DISADVANTAGE: This method has certain advantages: While choosing from two statements from each series the rater is unable to introduce personal bias or halo effect. The supervisor keeps a written record of the events (either good or bad) that can easily be recalled and used in the course of a 17 . However. Further. The essence of this system is that it attempts to measure worker’s performance in terms of certain ’events’ or ‘episodes’ that occur in the performances of the rate’s job. The basis of this method is the principle that” there are certain significant acts in each employee’s behavior and performance which make all the difference between success and failure on the job”. Finally. This increases the overall objectively of this method. These events are known as Critical incidents.

Performance Management System periodical or formal appraisal. 18 . Feedback is provided about the incidents during performance review session.

 19 . Performed ineffectively on a project because of failure to plan properly. administer a reprimand in his own name: Named his supervisor as the responsible one. accurately the actual incidents from the daily activities of an employee.   Apologized to a subordinate when he was in the wrong. Planned for long-range requirements and future developments with unusual effectiveness.  This approach reduces the "regency" effect (most recent incidents get too much emphasis) of most performance rating Example of what can be included in a Managerial Critical Incident Check List  Refused to take an unpleasant decision or.   Demonstrated the ability to give first priorities to jobs.  Reported findings on a problem in a fashion.  Vague impressions and general remarks are avoided. which expedited an effective solution.  Refused to accept job instructions without a prolonged discussion or argument.  Resisted pressure to start a job without sufficient advance thought and planning. for the supervisors are trained to record.  Failed to consider alternative ways of performing a job when available information indicated that he should.Performance Management System DISADVANTAGE: The advantages of this method are:  This method provides an objective basis for conducting a discussion of an individual's performance.

Appropriated the good ideas of subordinates as his own              20 . Failed to prepare a report on lime when specifically requested to do so. Insisted on using equipment.

Studied a current operating procedure and made effective recommendations for improvement. Put the blame for his own mistakes on his subordinates.Performance Management System  Acquired a thorough knowledge of the equipment for which he was not responsible. Failed to keep superiors informed about important job developments affecting other Departments or divisions. Needed prodding on jobs outside of his major responsibilities. which was not justified.

HALO EFFECT: Another common error in performance appraisal is the halo effect. CENTRAL TENDENCY: The central tendency occurs when appraisal statistics indicate that most employees are appraised as being near the middle of the performance scale. 21 . RECENCY: Recency occurs when evaluation based on work performed most recently---.Performance Management System ERRORS IN PERFORMANCE APPRIASAL POTENTIAL ERRORS IN PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL: Several common errors have been identified in performance appraisal.generally work performed one to two months prior to evaluation. This occurs when a rater allows a single prominent characteristic of an employee to influence his or her judgment on each separate item in the performance appraisal. Someone is the followings: LENIENCY: Leniency is the grouping of ratings at the positive end instead of spreading them throughout the performance scale.

but they normally emphasize that evaluator should be trained to observe behavior more accurately and judge it more fairly.distribution method of performance appraisal attempt to overcome the errors of leniency and central tendency. In addition. For example. the potential for errors in performance appraisal is great. Unfortunately. the use of performance appraisal information. the importance of the rater’s role in the total appraisal process.Performance Management System OVERCOMING ERRORS IN PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL: As the preceding discussion indicates. One approach to overcoming these errors is to make refinements in the design of appraisal methods. A more promising approach to overcoming errors in performance appraisals is to improve the skills of rater. instruments appraisal. behaviorally anchored rating scales are to reduce the halo. one could argue that the forced. because refined instruments frequently do not overcome all the obstacles. rater should receive the training in the performance appraisal methods used by the company. leniency and central tendency errors because they provide managers with specific example of performance against which to evaluate an employee. Suggestion on the specific training that should be given to evaluators are often vague. at a minimum. and the communication skills necessary to provide feedback to the employee. However. it does will not appear likely that in refining the appraisal totally overcome errors performance 22 .
