performance management process.

scenario: Assume your organization’s executive team is considering hiring outside consultants to develop a performance management process that the organization can use to plan, monitor, coach, review, and reward employees. With the knowledge and skills you have developed in the University of Phoenix Personnel Psychology course, you want to propose to the CEO a research-based performance management process that would put you in charge of the company performance management process.


Use the following outline to develop a 15- to 20-slide PowerPoint proposal for a performance management process for the executive team. Use the following outline and questions for your proposal. Since you are presenting to executives, keep it simple. Speaker’s notes are not necessary. Make sure you communicate whole ideas succinctly on the slides of the presentation.


You are preparing a proposal for an executive team, not a paper for a professor. Keep it simple. Briefly communicate whole ideas that you support with research.

Briefly respond to each question with full ideas that you support with research. Develop each slide to stand alone without you but do not overwhelm the slides with narration.

To establish credibility and strengthen your persuasive skills, support your analysis and recommendation with research from the course materials and other credible sources.
