The topic chosen to research and analyse for the purpose of this dissertation is the area of performance management. The area of performance management is a very topical issue and is a system that operates in most progressive organisations worldwide. Performance management can work to improve the overall environment of an organisation.
The current volatile economic climate as it stands presently means that effective management of employees within organisations is paramount to achieve strategic goals and success(Krattenmaker, 2009). The purpose of performance management is to contribute to the achievement of high performance by the organisation and its people, (Armstrong and Baron 2005). It aims to make the good better, share understanding, provide support and guidance to people to deliver high performance and achieve their full potential to benefit themselves and the organisation.
