Strategic Thinking on Executive Performance Management
Date: 2023 TBD
Note: Due to the epidemic, the actual starting time for the courses shall be subject to the notice from the class coordinator.
Dedicated to linking theory and practice, the Programme is designed for all executives, CFOs and HR directors who are focused on the performance management system.
How do performance management tools enhance executives’ capability for strategic management? Executives are a driving force behind the performance management system and a significant determinant of the success of performance management. In reality, however, executives fail to design the overall performance solutions from the perspective of strategic objectives, due to misconceptions about performance management.
The Programme will fuse corporate strategy, performance assessment and incentives design with relevant management theory and practice, highlighting the significance of the theoretical architecture and other key factors in design and execution. In addition, the Programme will probe into the design and execution of the performance assessment and incentive system, and its synergy with corporate strategies, operations and HR management.
