Agile methods have become increasingly popular because they empower organizations to more quickly address emerging opportunities, to better ensure accurate fulfillment of functional requirements and to significantly enhance team productivity. Many organizations, however, are hesitant to employ agile methods for their safety-critical systems—since they have serious concerns about compromising those systems and thereby exposing themselves to completely unacceptable consequences.IBM Rational Chief Evangelist Bruce Powel Douglass explains how best practices for project management can assist organizations in experiencing all the benefits of agile development while continuing to maintain rigorous standards essential for successful delivery of safety-critical systems.
Are performance reviews more time consuming than useful? Do your employees and your organization actually benefit from them? Well they should, and if done right, they will.
You will learn how reviews can:
- Motivate managers and employees
- Create better managers (not better reviewers)
- Improve TEAM performance
- Contribute to organizational knowledge

See how great organizations use reviews to:
• Motivate employees
• Increase employee productivity
• Create an on-going dialog between employees and managers
• Support overall organizational goals
Being a manager is hard. Being a great manager is even harder. Learn simple things you can do as a manager to increase performance from both individuals and teams.
Simple strategies like:
• Talk less, listen more

• Accentuate the positive
JSJ Corporation realized they had a problem: their performance management process. And sticking with the familiar, time-consuming spreadsheets wasn’t helping them drive long-term talent decisions.
The solution? A performance management system that would simplify the process and drive long-term success.
Tracking employee performance is tough enough, but doing it with spreadsheets is a nightmare. It’s time consuming, error-prone and everyone in the organization suffers. And after all that hard work, what do you end up with:
• Incomplete or useless employee reviews
• No real organizational insight
• A headache
Want a better performing team? Of course you do.
In business, you rely on the successful performance of teams, but performance reviews only look at the strengths and weaknesses of individuals. How do you bridge the gap?

Self-assessments…wasted time or time well spent? It depends…it’s all in your approach.
Self-assessments can be a powerful tool for you to showcase your accomplishments, show professional growth and desire to learn.
Whether you're just getting started or taking your business to the next level, paper-based performance reviews are not the way to go. When you have limited HR resources it probably seems easier to print off forms than sign up for software, but that pile of paper will cost you more in the long run… Get smart with your performance management!
Annual performance reviews…are you just over it? Affiliates Management Company (AMC) was, too.
