Improving Performance is like Flying to the Moon – Heidi Kreuchen

Published on 2014-07-09

THE PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT PROCESS IS BROKEN. Performance appraisals, when done at all, are normally only once or twice a year, and often result in demotivated staff. The process is not transparent, and objectives are locked down for the year without any flexibility relevant to the changing market conditions. As a consequence, it is no surprise that many companies don’t hit their goals.
Hedi Kreuchen, Regional Vice President, Australia / NZ at Saba says that there is a better way. Kreuchen says that performance management must be done continuously, and feedback provided on a weekly basis. Otherwise, like a rocket to the moon that does not adjust its trajectory, your company will miss the moon!
