What is the future of Performance Management

What is the future of Performance Management
Monday 7th March 5.30 to 7.30 pm
Bridge View, 1 North Esplanade West, Aberdeen
The discussion at our meeting in March centres round Performance Management. A common practice in many companies despite arguments that in many applications it is counterproductive.
Aligned with the idea of performance management is the use of “rewards” to “motivate” individuals. The likes of Alfie Kohn has been arguing since the 1980s that rewards, in all manner of guises, act to reduce/distort motivation in context of the work in hand. These rewards can be in the form of monetary rewards, or the gaining of a qualification, or even status.
The RSA web site has a really excellent 10 minute video clip by Dan Pink on this issue. Its title is “Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates”  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc   we strongly recommend that you click on this site – it will be 10 minutes that may surprise you and stay with you for the rest of your life.
Dr Tony Miller of Robert Gordon University will set the scene – and then it is open for discussion. We are anticipating a lively debate
So please do come along on Monday 7th March, to contribute and participate in exploring the issue of “What is the Future of Performance Management”
