Which componentsof performance-management systems do you think are most importantand least important? Why? Explain which components linkmost closely to risk-management and quality-management systemsand provide specific examples to support your answer.
Thecomponents of performance management are of great importance toensure that organizational goals are achieved. They can be ranked intheir order of importance, though the margins would not be great.Performance planning is a crucial component as it defines thedirection that a health organization will take to this is especiallywhen it comes to the Human Resources (MSG Experts, 2013). It is ofgreat importance that planning is done critically and is scrutinizedcarefully. Performance reviewing and appraisal then follows in therank. It is important that the organization evaluates progress andrewards good performance as well as correcting on the weaknesses (MSGExperts, 2013). On the other hand the component of feedback onperformance would be of least importance. For instance, employees andtheir managers do not necessarily have to communicate directly so asto get feedback. This is because feedback can be attained through theresults obtained from the employees’ work.
Performanceplanning relates to both quality and risk management. The planningprocess is considerate of all factors and variables that riskoriented, as well as those that are geared to ensuring quality isdelivered by both the managers and the employees (MSG Experts, 2013).Performance appraisal, rewarding of employees’ good performance andfeedback on performance can be closely related to quality management.They are adopted to ensure that quality is delivered and upheldthrough encouragement (MSG Experts, 2013). On the other hand, theformulation of performance improvement plans can be viewed as a riskmanagement strategy. The redefinition of goals is usually a way ofsealing loopholes that may lead to further losses and poorperformance.
