It values leaders who build human capital by motivating employees and developing and managing talent. The book identifies two means of performance management. Performance development promises a motivating workplace and employee career training. Performance measurement, holds employees accountable and measures their contribution.

Book Description Kogan Page Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. What teachers, police, City high flyers along with the majority of the workforce have in common is that their performance is increasingly being managed, monitored and measured. This is for a number of reasons. Within the public sector, the Modernising Government agenda has raised the emphasis on outcomes and measures of success. Within the private sector concern with shareholder value has put pressure on organisations to predict and deliver business improvements. Managing and Measuring Performance examines how attitudes have changed and how performance management approaches have in turn evolved both in terms of sophistication and their degree of integration with people management practice. Looking at the principles and practice of performance management the authors describe the typical performance management cycle, include results of their empirical work and surveys and include numerous case studies in this essential guide to contemporary performance management practice.
