Performance management training – ITD

Performance management training helps managers get the best from their team and each individual in it. Performance management is a skill which can be learnt and is essential for every manager or team leader.

Managing performance is fundamentally what every manager’s job is about.
A manager is measured by the performance of their team.

It is therefore by definition essential for the manager to know how to manage performance.

Performance management training in 2015

Performance management training gives managers and leaders the processes and skills to ensure the right level of performance is achieved by their teams. Training needs to be tailored to the business and market, so that it is relevant to the participants and does not need ‘translating’ for their day to day life.
