Week 2 Discussion Board Prompt
Part A. Please read Chapter 5 in Aguinis and review this weekâ€™s power point lecture and notes on Chapter 5 prior to participating in this discussion.
The focus this week has been on defining performance and measuring results and behaviors of performance. The Aguinis text discusses three steps to measuring a results approach to performance.
- Step 1: Establish role Accountability: Identifying what employees are accountable for in their role based on the job analysis and job description. The text refers to this as identifying key â€œaccountabilities.â€ See page 107-109, 5.1.1 for an example of establishing accountabilities.
- Step 2: Set role Objectives: Objectives should be set, based on employee accountabilities. See page 109, 5.1.2 for an example of setting objectives and table 5.1 on page 110 in the Aguinis text for the Ten Characteristics of good objectives.
- Step 3: Determine role performance standards. Performance standards help employees understand the extend that they have achieved the objectives set forth in step 2. See page 111, 5.1.3 Determining Performance Standards in your Aguinis text.
