About Performance Management
Perform Mgmt - Perfrom Mgmt

A performance management system delivers a significant return on investment through operational efficiencies, lower costs and more aligned goals and objectives. Performance management also allows for better management control of outcomes, a higher degree of transparency, better communication, and improved documentation.

By utilizing a system like the Work Effects PerformanceSUM, an organization can establish strategic business processes that are consistent with long term objectives. These processes are automated to allow managers to spend more time managing and less on data collection and paperwork. A sophisticated system like PerformanceSUM will help individuals and organizations align their goals and these goals will then be directly tied to outcomes.

Conflict LensTM
As part of our ongoing research in performance management, the Work Effects Conflict Lens was designed to assist organizations to effectively manage conflict in the workplace. Behaviors that lead to constructive outcomes of conflict will directly affect how individuals work together and resolve conflict within the organization. Conflict Lens has been designed to identify ten important dimensions that represent how a person approaches conflict and how destructive/constructive particular outcomes were in resolving this conflict.
