How do you position your business unit for exceptional performance?
As a supervisor, manager or executive, you are responsible to ensure the optimum performance of your employees and ultimately your business unit. You are also likely responsible for conducting employee evaluations. But with so many demands, how do you know what to focus on? How do you ensure that your employees are focused on the right things? And how can you position yourself and your employees to generate the best results for your organization?
Performance Planning and Management (PPM) empowers supervisors, managers and executive to systematically plan, manage, evaluate and improve results for individual employees and your business unit. It provides you with the tools and framework to align the goals and targets for each business unit, and each employee, with the organizational goals. And it provides the basis for evaluating results relative to those targets.
Who should take this course?
This course is for success oriented, ethical managers that want to improve the productivity, efficiency, and quality of their business unit in a responsible way. And to ensure that your business unit delivers results that are aligned with the "big picture" goals of your organization.
This course is NOT for those looking for a quick fix or shortcuts to success.
This is a challenging course, and requires participants to complete exercises to truly gain the skills. In the real world, it will require time, effort and consistent application to create the desired results. But once you learn these techniques and tools, you will have valuable and lasting skills that can be applied at more senior levels of management.
How we ensure your success

The course covers the concepts, terminology and application of the Performance Planning and Management Framework to:
Through instruction, examples and case studies, you will gain in-depth knowledge of the tools and techniques to apply at both the business unit level, and for individual employees.
At the end of each section, there will be a quiz to help you determine if you have successfully met the learning objectives for the material. If you find there's areas where you are unclear, you can go back and re-do those lessons (or contact your instructor with questions!). At the end of the course, you will find a detailed self assessment that determines how well you have met the overall learning objectives. And as you have unlimited access to the course, you can go back at any time to learn more.
This course can be taken alone, but is ideally combined with "Improve Employee Performance", which delves into detail on how you can guide individual employees to higher performance and superior results.
