Performance Management Process


Bridging strategic thinking with tactical execution, augmenting teaching with personnel development practices, and being cognizant of how people 'listen you' have been invaluable outputs realized through executive coaching with Matt. His real world experience, keen observation skills, and hands on approach fostered subtle changes in my approach to strategic thinking, team interaction, and presentation styles. Involving Matt's organization in a group project aimed at eliminating non-value added process through a transaction reduction kaizen or 'mini-work-out,' presented improvement opportunities while fostering increased camaraderie within the team.

All Testimonials

Performance Management


  • Does your company reliably achieve it's operating objectives?
  • Are your strategic and operating plans communicated and understood throughout your organization?
  • Is there a linkage between the operating plan and department and employee objectives?
  • Are your managers actively engaged to ensure results are achieved?

Performance management is the overarching process through which an organization's strategic and operating plans are translated into the sub-processes and actions that ensure execution. Performance management
is widely discussed and equally widely misunderstood.

What it is:

The process that drives execution

The process that links the organization to operating plans

The responsibility of executive management

A company's most powerful alignment tool

The difference between an operating plan and hope


What it isn't:

Another name for performance appraisal

Extra-curricular administrative process

The sole responsibility of HR

We work with you to establish an integrated approach to link objectives to group, department and individual goals. We guide you in developing the sub-processes to ensure execution of your operating plans.
