The Future of Performance Management

Backwards-looking performance management systems have had their day – wahoo! – and need to be replaced by methods of building relevant future-focused performance and capacity.

Existing systems serve largely to demotivate and divide, and do nothing to motivate people to develop new skills and practice, or to maintain a team or company mindset, or to challenge poor management when it should be.
