Introduction to Performance Management Systems (one page)


As we have explored, throughout Module 1, performance management systems are critical to individual and organizational success. Consider the scenario below and respond to the three questions asked.


You are the new owner of a small business. About one week ago, you purchased this business from the previous owner who decided to retire. The previous owner was a phenomenal businesswoman; however, she did not value the importance of performance management systems. When you decided to purchase the business, you knew that you would need to make organizational changes. Based upon the information provided, answer the following questions:

  1. In your own words, explain the benefits of a performance management system in terms of employee and organizational success.
  2. Explain the implications associated with poorly implemented performance management systems.
  3. Address components that you believe your performance management system should include.

Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories (require supporting citations) in your initial response along with at least one scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article.. Use APA style guidelines. 

Be sure to support your statements with logic and argument, citing all sources referenced. Post your initial response early and check back often to continue the discussion.

You are required to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question. These peer replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
