Performance management: A contemporary South African perspective examines the practice of performance management from the perspective of the modern South African workplace. It aims to highlight best practice and innovative ideas for implementation that will help managers, employees and teams to achieve success and improve results. The lines between management and appraisal are often blurred and performance management is unfortunately often seen in a negative light.  In this work, the focus is on confronting the complexities and challenges of performance management, while offering pragmatic solutions.  A professional and systematic approach to performance management is described, thereby addressing gaps in current approaches and methods in suggesting more innovative ways of adapting practice to the new world of work. This book reveals the true nature of performance management and the power it holds if implemented effectively.  

Performance management: A contemporary South African perspective explores various aspects of performance management systems and processes and aims to include examples and real-life scenarios to highlight practical guidelines and applications that can help managers to balance the positive and more challenging aspects of performance management.

The book is divided into 3 parts, namely:

·         PART A: Performance management philosophy and planning

·         PART B: Performance assessment and feedback

·         PART C: Performance improvement

 Performance management: A contemporary South African perspective is aimed at senior undergraduate as well as postgraduate students at further and higher education institutions within South Africa. It will also serve as a valuable resource to human resource practitioners and managers.
