Performance management is viewed as a necessary evil in many organizations due to the myriad barriers for implementing a consistent, highly supported process. Half or more of implementation efforts produce limited or even negative results. This paper explores the reasons for failures and presents a best practice approach for instituting performance management programs that work based on the following nine factors.

  • Establishing guiding principles and program architecture provides a solid foundation;
  • Clear success criteria show what excellent performance looks like;
  • Alignment of expectations produces a clear line of sight;
  • Clearly articulated roles and coaching capabilities support a fair contract for performance;
  • A specified process serves as a reliable roadmap;
  • Commitment to developing collaborative coaching capabilities is the primary driver of successful execution;
  • Integration into day-to-day practices makes performance management the linchpin for leveraging talent;
  • Providing distributed information and ongoing support creates ownership of the process;
  • Creating and implementing a change plan makes the process sustainable.
