Please find here the answers to the Team Performance Reading Assessment Reading Assignment
- After reading “Team Performance Assessment” (pp. 25-43), respond in your blog to the following question:
– Is it a good idea to remove individual performance evaluations and focus only on team performance as model #4 suggests?
Answer : is it a good idea ? no / focus only on team performance ? no , it has to be a combination of both . as eliminating the individual performance might lead to having some of the individuals working more than others and receiving the same rating . and that does effect the moral on the long term . as well can have some of the personnel depend on the high performers that want to get the job done for them .
i think what should be done is what most of the large companies do . upper management are evaluated on goals related to the corporate objectives and that drills down so that even the employee knows how he is relating his tasks and jobs to the bigger pictures. and evaluated for completing his tasks along with close follow up during the year with his manager to know how he is doing in achieving the company objective . along to that the individuals skills in team work and sharing knowledge and information should be monitored and evaluated along to achieve an overall assessment of the employee .
having the right competencies is very important for an employee to excel in his job . on the other behalf relating merit increases to the performance is sometimes not really good especially when force ranking or having a certain number of promotions a year is limited where it could lower the moral ( not all but at least for the first couple of month from receiving what wasn’t expected ) sometimes its just great to say you have done a great job but the increase this year will be low for everyone but not force rank an employees performance although leaders know he did a superior job.
Leaders have a great task to do where they have to balance and frequently update their personnel of the performance and know all what they do so that the employee feels that he is worth the position and is looked at positively . training and HR development is always a positive thing any employer should do to give a chance for the employee to get our of the work environment , learn and come back to practice his learnings and skills grabbed from that training .
