    (Although the term “performance” is conventionally used in literature
    about management, some people might have an averse reaction to that term. For
    them, they might use the term “effectiveness” instead.)

    Strongly Suggested Pre-Reading

    The traditional approach to performance management, whether applied to an organization,
    team or employee, is increasingly criticized as being obsolete, invalid and
    unsuitable to today’s organizations and workforce. Consequently, the performance
    management process is being transformed by many progressive organizations. This
    should be understood by anyone wanting to understand and apply the process.

    Guidelines for Implementing and Evaluating
    the Process

    There are some standard guidelines that can ensure the success of any implementation
    of any performance management process. Be sure to read and follow those guidelines,
    especially if this is your first implementation of a comprehensive process.
    The guidelines also can be useful if you are trying to improve a process that
    you have already implemented.
