The Ultimate Guide to Agile Performance Management
In this article you’ll find an easy to understand explanation of Agile Performance Management and its benefits. But before we jump in, let’s understand why Agile Performance Management is needed.
Take a step back from work or study for a moment and imagine you are at this Ellie Goulding concert.
If you don’t want to watch the whole video, jump to these points and watch a few seconds:
0.07 when the audience sings
0.45 when the audience jumps in unison
Pretty cool huh?
Now imagine a world where the crowd don’t provide instant feedback. They listen casually and then 6 or 12 months later write a review and rate the performance. What kind of performance would Ellie give without immediate feedback? What level of energy, enthusiasm and engagement would everyone else feel without that immediate feedback?
This provides a great place to begin our exploration of Agile Performance Management. We can’t make the workplace like an Ellie Goulding concert, but we can build on the energy of our time and create enthusiasm and engagement.
To start with, we’re going to take a trip back in the Delorean Time Machine.
