Today’s world is undergoing a lot of challenges with the COVID_19 pandemic dominating our life, our decisions, and our future. As the world is held captive to mandatory quarantine over the last 18 months, organisations all over the globe experienced complete transformation to their workforce working model. Organisations forced adoption of remote work is associated with a lot of doubts and ambiguity. Anderson and Kelliher, (2020) for example state that abstract relocation and remote work brought flexibility and freedom to employees’ ability to manage work and non-work-related events. Therefore, the necessity to conduct research on the subjects of remote working and performance management became inevitable.

The dissertation's key purpose is to comprehend in more depth the nature of remote performance management in the IT industry. Moreover, to explore from a managerial perspective the challenges, gains, and consequences to conduct remote performance management. Additionally, to investigate the role of cultural differences in the process of remote performance management. The researcher relied heavily on the assessment of present literature to particular study subjects that to date are still primitive, and the adoption of pragmatic research within the secondary data.

This research explores the gaps in the dictated adoption of global remote work. Additionally, investigate in-depth the link to employee performance and remote work, the associated gains, and challenges.

The researcher throughout this study adopted a mono method strategy which is sponsored by semi-structured interviews of a small sample size, and the outcome was analysed through the deployment of the qualitative data assembly approach. Additionally, the adopted inductive method empowered the researcher in the process of developing a comprehensive knowledge of the subject of remote performance management across cross-cultural teams in the IT industry. Consequently, supported the researcher in extrapolating the proper information to fill the research gaps within this subject.
