An AgileCMMI Approach to Performance Management in Development Organizations

Annual performance appraisal systems are broken.

Employees hate them.  HR departments don’t trust the results.  Organizations don’t benefit from them. Performance Appraisals are often negative, sometimes painful, and usually meaningless administrative tours to be endured – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

In “An AgileCMMI Approach to Performance Management in Development Organizations,” engineering and software executives, managers and teams learn to take a lighter, more agile approach to managing and motivating people in a structured CMMI environment that provides meaningful data to help the organization improve.

End the dreaded annual event and embrace the “true meaning” of performance – a culture where people get timely feedback on relevant performance deliverables and their connection to the organizational purpose. "An AgileCMMI Approach" helps you avoid repeating the mistakes of the past, and transform your performance appraisal system into something that is highly useful for your organization.
