This won't only improve organisational performance, it'll also set an example on the importance of performance appraisals and how best to go about implementing them.

Assess these three areas when reviewing a manager's performance

There are three areas every manager should perform on. These are also the areas you must look at when assessing your manager's performance.

Let's take a look at them…

#1: Achievement of results

You need to define and measure Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and objectives.

Every manager's KPIs and objectives must derive directly from your company's strategic and operational objectives.

#2: Demonstration of value-based behaviour

By defining the behaviours that support your company's values and assessing to what extent every manager lives these values, the values become alive in the company. They become well-established in your company's culture.

#3: Demonstration of competencies

Competencies refer to the skills, knowledge and behaviours that the manager possesses, says the Practical Guide to Human Resources Management.

While performance objectives identify what the manager must achieve, competencies highlight how he must achieve these objectives.

Here's the bottom line: Never neglect managers when reviewing performance or doing performance appraisals - they also need feedback regarding their performance so they can continue to perform better and add more value to your company. Be sure to look at the three things we've outlined when reviewing their performance to make sure they do just that.
