Learn the theory and practice of performance management to plan effective performance management policies and improve organisational and employee performance.
How do you systematically decide and communicate strategic performance aims, objectives, priorities and targets? How do you plan effective policies and practices? Which techniques, rewards and sanctions should you use to improve performance? How do you critically evaluate the effectiveness of performance management? Performance Management combines theory and practice to help students master these key concepts and apply their learning. Mapping to the CIPD Level 7 Advanced unit by the same name, the book is a core text for any student taking a performance management module at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
Featuring examples from a range of sectors and organizations across the globe, Performance Management is packed with pedagogical features such as learning outcomes, case studies, activities, reflection questions and further reading to fully engage students with the subject. Online supporting resources include an instructor's manual, lecture slides and annotated web links for students.
It is very student friendly as each chapter commences with learning outcomes and then goes on to provide an introduction followed by a critical walk through the specific area under discussion all backed up with exercises, reflective activities, case studies and a further reading section.

This book presents excellent coverage of the subject. I believe it will provide the long awaited contemporary and comprehensive text this subject area has needed for several years.
