In the modern business environment, substantial importance is placed on both individual and organisational performance. The management of individual performance to achieve optimum outcomes typically occur at the operational level, however, is strongly linked to the overall organisational strategies.

MGT3003 HR Performance Management examines the concepts, principles and systems associated with managing employee performance in the workplace. Links are made between individual, team and organisational performance, including the alignment of goals at different levels. The differing perceptions and expectations of performance by different stakeholders are also considered. Ways of reviewing performance are taken into account as well as the impact of performance on the bottom line.

MGT3003 also considers non-performance and under-performance as components of unsatisfactory performance and then considers interventions that are intended to change and improve unsatisfactory performance in order to bring about improved individual performance and personal growth.

Students should note that this is a third level course.
