May Section Meeting: Agile Performance Management

Great companies manage performance by looking at teams, not drudging through annual performance reviews. Agile Performance Management helps organizations understand how teams helping fulfill corporate goals and improve agile teams so that they can meet those goals. Social recognition and frequent feedback are the heart of agile. Skill development and just-in-time learning are investments that pay off. Measuring teams performance, providing feedback, and giving the tools to meet expectations – that’s what’s replacing tortuous annual performance reviews.

Agile Performance Management provides a full continuum of meaningful performance – and it happens all the time, not just every 6-months.

Highlights:

This presentation describes how organizations that have implemented the Agile Performance Management program can be successful in many ways:

• aligning the performance of teams with the goals of the organization

• providing employees with a voice in influencing individual, team and organizational performance

• providing supervisors with the skills they need to coach and counsel employees and teams every day, not just at annual appraisal times

• providing the organization with a health check of their training and organizational development efforts by gathering cumulative information about performance management trends
