Information About Performance Management - A Briefcase Book (Mcgraw-Hill)
Performance Management - A Briefcase Book by Robert Bacal
Fast becoming a classic book on performance management, Performance Management - A Briefcase Book has been translated into a number of languages, including Chinese, French and Spanish. The reason is simple. This book was written to provide a workable, practical approach to performance management and performance appraisal, and take into account the modern world we all live in. It's tightly written, concise, and tells readers what to DO, to make performance management and employee reviews work. And, of course how to do the process to reduce the pain and discomfort on all sides.
What's Unique: Most prescriptions for managing performance focus only on INDIVIDUAL performance, and place much too much stress on the performance appraisal process. That's one reason why appraisals are so uncomfortable. This book was written to reflect principles from systems thinking, and total quality managmenet and is much more consistent with these principles than any other book on the market. And, above all, it moves the emphasis from completing forms and back where it belongs -- on communication between manager and employee.
The format of the book is also unique. Key points are displayed on most pages, so you can learn key elements quickly. Finally, this book doesn't have an outrageous price tag. Listing for about $14.95 U.S. (but often available for less).
