Agile Performance Management
The advent of new technologies (email, video conferencing, the cloud, etc.) coupled with the liberalisation of traditional business culture, helped to facilitate the somewhat sudden arrival of Agile Performance Management (APM).
Like traditional Performance Management, Agile Performance Management still focuses on leadership, development and the measured performance of the people within a given organisation, but it does so in a more refined way.
APM is designed to help organisations provide feedback to, and encourage communication between, all of its actors on a much more frequent basis. This increased transparency creates an upsurge of energy, enthusiasm and engagement within the people that make up the organisation.
At its core, APM takes the original objective of Performance Management – improved organisational performance driven by alignment – and breaks it into two distinct features:
- Development Focus
- Frequency of Feedback
The two features are designed to hone in on the notion that a more skilled, educated and informed workforce can perform with greater effectiveness and efficiency so long as they have:
- A clear understanding of the organisation’s development strategy
- Consistent communication and coaching
