 Article Title :: Are you Really Listening to your Performance Measures?
 
Performance measurement isn't about justification, it's about improvement.INTRODUCTIONA management team distributes themselves around the board room table, the ritual of the monthly performance management meeting begins. Before too long, the first performance measure in the monthly report is under their scrutiny. It seems that supply costs have increased and now the procurement manager is under scrutiny. He deftly deflects the result with the explanation that a major supplier upped their prices. On to the next measure, and it shows that unfinished work is climbing. The operational manager takes his turn in the CYA game (i).THE TYPICAL ORGANISATIONAL PERFORMANCE REVIE  (read full article)

Here are some ideas for how to get more rigour into your decision process by sliding a little further away from fantasy and a little further toward fact.CLUES THAT YOU'RE WITNESSING AN ILL-INFORMED DECISION PROCESSYou can tell the hallmarks of an ill-informed decision process simply by listening for all the substitutes that are offered in place of re  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Business Questions your Performance Measures Should Answer
 
You can't make informed decisions if the information you're using can't answer your questions.INTRODUCTIONThe report design working group sat around the table, sifting through the draft strategic performance report to suggest how to make it more useful. Measure by measure they chatted and suggested and critiqued and debated: "this one would look better if it was a bar chart", "yeah, I like the three-dimensional bar charts", "we should add another line to this chart because it would be interesting to show", "it's pretty easy to get Excel to turn this one into a stacked bar chart, that way we could get more information onto it". Then someone asked: "hang on, what questions are  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Should you Measure Individual People's Performance?
 
Two schools of thought on using performance measures to manage people in organisations.INTRODUCTIONPerformance Appraisal, Individual Performance Review, Personal Performance Development Plan. There are numerous names for this artifact of the post-1990's organisation, but they are names for basically the same concept: the measurement, review, evaluation and management of the performance of an employee. And it is one of the most contentious management processes of them all!WHY ORGANISATIONS DO ITThere are many reasons why managers continue to use individual performance appraisals, despite their love-hate relationship with them:- to motivate staff to perfor  (read full article)

 Article Title :: What to do with your Ugly Measures!
 
We sure do put up some poor excuses for performance measures - here's what to do with the ugliest of them.INTRODUCTIONWinning awards, completing projects and initiatives on time, meeting budget, counting widgets, annual surveys, and whatever we can find at the back of the 'performance measure pantry' that was left over from last year - they are all ugly measures!

 Article Title :: Are You Taking Responsibility for Your Business?
 
A few weeks ago we asked several work at home moms a fun question - Would you do something illegal, even if you probably wouldn't be caught?Of course, everyone said "absolutely not!". This is the response you would expect from most anyone in the work at home mom community. We have to set an example for our children, of course.However, it amazes me how often I see others involved in illegal activities or not taking responsibility for their business. No matter if it's using excuses to not deliver products on time or running a business without proper licenses - it's unethical, irresponsible, and sometimes illegal.As they say, ignorance of the law is no excuse. It's true   (read full article)

A criminal check is a part of the background check done for pre-employment screening. A criminal background check has become an inexpensive way of legally obtaining details about a person. The details of the person can even be provided to the companies through their websites online and the results would be produced as soon as possible depending on the extent of the background check required.A criminal check can be done by investigating the criminal history of the person that would be recorded in the criminal record manuals of the courts.

 Article Title :: What the Military Does Right: Lessons for Business
 
The military whether in the U.S. or any other country comes under constant scrutiny and criticism for what it does wrong. This is true both when at war, when at peace and when preparing for conflict. Beneath the weapons, the camouflage and the rigid tradition-bound hierarchy there are many things the military does right. These can serve as examples for businesses and organizations of all sizes.Accept only the best people. In spite of the recent controversy about U.S. Army recruiting not meeting goals, the military is always looking for the best men and women for their enlisted ranks and their officer corps.

 Article Title :: Diversity Increases Group Decision-Making Ability
 
A recent study by Tufts University scientists looked into the impact of diversity relative to juries. As reported by the United Press International, the study looked at decisions made by all-white juries in decisions made by a diverse jury of blacks and whites.The study looked strictly at all-white versus black-and-white juries and made no apparent attempt to involve other national or racial cultures.According to the study, diverse groups made fewer factual errors relative to the evidence in when errors were made they were more likely to be identified as errors.The Multicultural Business Council (www.mbc-usa.org)has long supported the body of knowledge that states div  (read full article)
