Adding Workflow to your Performance Management processes

I have seen several times, enterprises facing problems with the implementation of their performance management systems and processes. There are several reasons for this.

The 3 main reasons for failure I have noted are:
  1. People
  2. Many of the performance management initiatives are run by a few individuals without involving all concerned.

  3. Systems / Models
  4. Many initiatives fail due to bad systems or bad performance management models

  5. Processes
  6. Most performance management initiatives fail to set the processes efficiently, and this is what I would like to elaborate a bit on in this blog entry.

I have seen many companies focusing on systems and KPIs, but rarely have I seen projects explaining how to use the systems and models. How to manage, when to act, how to act, when to update, when to meet, etc. are important questions for a performance management project.
Actually, it is not a project – it is an ongoing process. It is, in short, a way of managing your company. If these processes (or management principles) are not set in a “project” they will most likely fail.
I believe that a performance management project should focus as much if not more on the processes (how to use information and manage performance), then on finding the perfect KPI [for those of you that are still searching – there is no perfect KPI!
Corporater’s workflow module helps companies exercise better control over their set strategy and performance management processes, and additionally “persuade” people/business to think in line with the organizational strategy. It also helps companies implement dynamic resource allocation, follow up on relative performance etc.
