Performance Management Systems supporting Evolution

You should focus on performance management systems that can support evolution if some or all of the following applies to your organisation or business:

  1. You already have an existing paper-based process that you want to take online and your main driver is reducing the administrative burden and streamlining the whole process.
  2. You have quite a specific way of administering pay or reward against your current process that you need to retain or replicate, you just want to make it quicker and easier.
  3. If some of your workforce lack technical capability then you probably want to start simply and have the potential for a solution to evolve or grow with you over time.
