By asking two questions, "Does the employee have adequate job knowledge?" and "does the employee have the proper attitude (desire) to perform the job?" and assigning a numerical rating between 1 and 10 for each answer, will place the employee in 1 of 4 the performance quadrants: 10 ---------------------------------- High | | | | A | B | | | | | Motivation | Resource/ | | | Environment | Does the Employee | | | have adequate job ---------------------------------- knowledge? | | | | C | D | | | | | Selection | Training | | | | 1 | | | Low ---------------------------------- 1 10 Low High Does the employee have the proper attitude (desire) to perform the job? 1. Quadrant A (Motivation): If the employee has sufficient job knowledge but has an improper attitude, this may be classed as motivational problem. The consequences (rewards) of the person's behavior will have to be adjusted. This is not always bad…the employee just might not realize the consequence of his or her actions. 2. Quadrant B (Resource/Process/Environment): If the employee has both job knowledge and a favorable attitude, but performance is unsatisfactory, then the problem may be out of control of the employee. i.e. lack of resources or time, task needs process improvement, the work station is not ergonomically designed, etc.
