The Importance of Performance Management Lifecycle Training

The success of any organisation rests on the performance of its employees. Managers play a vital role in helping employees reach their best possible performance level through effective performance management.

It is important that managers are clear on how best to manage their team’s performance. Training in this subject helps to make this clear, with theoretical backing such as the three key stages of performance management providing an informative support to real-world practice.

Organisations that invest in performance management training reap the benefits in terms of their managers’ skillsets and employee relations, and ultimately their business’ success.

The performance management lifecycle is a framework for managers to understand how to best manage their teams to ensure good outcomes. It sets out the key area for managers to focus on: planning, monitoring and supporting, and reviewing. Training on the performance management lifecycle can help managers and employees perform at their best.

The key elements of performance management are planning, setting clear expectations, monitoring performance, supporting staff and reviewing performance. These are all skills managers need to learn to effectively manage staff performance. Knowledge of SMART objectives and the performance management lifecycle can help managers to hone their skills in these areas.

Managers effectively manage employee performance through good communication and consistent messaging. Expectations should be clearly set out and clear, measurable goals set – accompanied by appropriate support and space for employees to speak up if they are struggling with their work. They should also reward good performance.
