Assessment Task
Using your critical review and analyses of literature on performance management,attempt to answer the following question:

Picking up ONE of the following competitive business strategies, please
examine how the performance management system would be designed
so that it aligns well with the business strategy of any company that you
decide to choose:

  • Innovative
  • Quality focused
  • Cost focused

Critical literature review is referred to writing a task based on summarising and evaluating relevant literature. To be critical does not necessarily mean to offer negative criticism. Rather, it means you should question the information and opinions presented in the literature and come up with your own interpretation, judgement or evaluation based on the literature. This means this exercise allows higher order thinking instead of just summarising activity.

In developing the assignment please recall we carried out a discussion around the strategic HR theories i.e. best fit, best practices and resource based view of the firm.For this assignment, best fit approach might be particularly relevant as we will be discussing how performance management strategy should be tailored to meet the chosen company’s objectives and competitive strategy. Also, try to recall and build
on the example that was shared with you on how for example T & D practice would be in house for a cost efficient firm (McDonald’s hamburger university) but it might be better to outsource T&D for an innovative company. Another example would be a cost effective company following arrow pay grades, and tend to rely less on intrinsic and fringe benefits whereas an innovative company uses a combination of extrinsic
and intrinsic and monetary and non-monetary incentives.

Using literature, come up with arguments on what performance management strategies would be best fit for companies in line with their business strategies. Discussion must be carried out around at least two of the various performance management related issues such as design of performance appraisals, reward structure, training and development, and feedback.

To complete this assignment to a high standard you need to research the peer-reviewed literature extensively (at least 6-8 papers) in addition to review topics covered in class. Please note that it is imperative that you substantiate your claims,which necessitates the extensive use of peer-reviewed literature to support your argument. You will need to read more broadly than the Readings suggested in the Unit Guide if you wish to get the most out of this assignment. Your argument and conclusions need to emphasise the critical elements of performance management systems in various business environments.
