Investment in HR-related technology and software may be up, but HR leaders still need to build a solid business case to get it over the line

    Great article, especially the “final tips.” Many companies know they need to make strategic changes to their HR technology, (especially performance management processes and software), but don’t know where to begin. As CEO of a performance management software company (GoalSpan), many of our clients have successfully navigated this change by… 1) discussing, clarifying and documenting organizational and individual goals, 2) managers holding frequent 1-to-1 meetings to discuss goal progress (quarterly at a minimum), and 3) posting goal progress into our software (using email). The annual review becomes a pre-written summary of the year, and a final assessment of goal achievement. The process concludes with goal setting for the next year.

    It’s important that whatever assessment organizations migrate to includes both the “what” was accomplished, and the “how.” You may have a rock-star sales person who exceeds quota, but nobody can get along with him. These development opportunities should not wait for a year-end conversation.
