Course Description: This course examines the effective management of people in the workplace. Performance management is the principal topic, but other factors such as the legal issues involved in measuring performance, alignment with business strategy and staffing are also considered. During this course we will examine the process of performance management, beginning with strategy and performance planning as part of the performance management process. We will discuss the legal constraints on the measurement and evaluation of performance. In relation to performance management, we will begin by a focus on hiring and selection. We will review the development of various types of performance criteria. Next, we will examine diagnosis as it relates to the causes of performance and the evaluation of performance. Providing feedback, dealing with feedback as well as approaches to improving performance are also important topics to be addressed. In addition, we will consider the subjects of training, career development, employee retention and termination. The overarching theme will be aligning individual performance and needs with strategies and objectives of the organization. The course will emphasize conceptual and practical understanding. Managers spend a great deal of time and attention focusing on the assessment and improvement of organizational performance. Effective management requires a thorough understanding and appreciation of the performance planning and management process as it influences current and future performance. Putting concepts into action requires skills that must be understood and practiced. Therefore, the course has dual concentration on concept and application.
