Employees forget about goal activities
Performance Management leaders assume employees will make steady daily progress toward goals, but many employees focus on urgent, not important activities. This often results in delayed or forgotten goal-related activities – until it is too late. The key is to teach employees a “system” for managing work – one that helps them focus on the right activities (performance management goal activities), and discriminate against lesser-value the tasks.
Note that our Personal Performance Management System e-Learning course combines the best time management tools and processes (Microsoft Outlook, Goal Planning, Daily Planning, Prioritizing, etc.) with your Company’s Performance Management System. This Personal Performance Management System gives your employees the tools and processes they need to focus on the activities that matter the most, and discriminate against tasks of lesser value. The objective is for employees to spend 1 hour more per day on Performance Management goal-related activities.
Dupont Learning and Performance Management
Dupont Learning has spent many years tailoring time management programs to company Performance Management Systems. For example, in the 90’s GE implemented a “Work Out” strategy – firing 10% of their workforce, and telling the remaining employees (now even busier) to adapt by “working out” lower value activities. In response, Dupont Learning provided a training program, and a Priority Management System, to help employees manage work in a way that focused attention on their highest value activities, and at the same time, forced discrimination on lower-value tasks. The result was that managers felt in control again, peeling away wasteful endeavors and zeroing in on goal-related assignments.
