Discussion Questions: Performance Evaluation Methods
Discussion One: Select three methods for conducting an evaluation of an employee’s performance.
Tell us what level of employee (management, administrative, clerical, laborer, etc.) would you use this method to evaluate.
Finally, provide the advantages and disadvantages for each method.
Discussion Two: Application
After reviewing the module material, answer the following taken from the module:
The acting head of software development advises you that she wants to develop an effective performance appraisal system for her department. She remembers, from having taken a human resource management class as an undergraduate, that there are a number of different ways to measure performance and she wants your guidance in selecting one.
She also wants to make sure that the method chosen to conduct performance appraisals fits the technical nature of the workers she supervises who work in teams. Knowing what an individualistic society the USA is, she suggests there be an individual and a team component.
Write and share a memo that outlines the different alternatives that you recommend as the most effective for appraising the performance of software developers working in teams. Share at least three alternatives with the pros and cons of each alternative you suggest.
