Armstrong's Handbook of Performance Management provides practical advice on managing staff performance. It includes innovations in the performance management process, guidance on 360-degree feedback, pay and personnel development planning.
Managing staff performance is an effective mechanism for developing both staff and organizational growth. By clarifying an organization's objectives, translating these into clear individual goals and reviewing these goals regularly, performance management provides a well-structured and effective management tool. In the completely updated fifth edition of Armstrong's Handbook of Performance Management, Michael Armstrong considers the latest developments in this area, and how these can be applied to managing staff for increased performance. The new edition includes guidance on 360-degree feedback and the results of a far-reaching e-reward survey of performance management practices in 156 organizations.
Ideal for practitioners and students alike, Armstrong's Handbook of Performance Management is aligned to the CIPD standards for Performance Management and so is ideal for those working towards the intermediate and advanced level qualifications. It remains the most authoritative and engaging textbook on performance management. Online supporting resources include lecture slides, a glossary of terms and a literature review.
If you come from the school of thought that believes appraisals should be swapped for something a little more holistic then Armstrong will give you much food for thought... There's enough here to keep the most pernickety HR manager happy.
It should be required reading for all line managers who propose that performance management is solely the job of the HR department, and for all those HR 'dinosaurs' who say the same.
The timing of this book is perfect, as the shift from appraisal schemes to performance managing is hitting its stride.
Wealth of practical advice... [Armstrong] uses charts, subheadings and bullet points to make his ideas clear.
