This article aims to clarify how researchers in management, human resource management, and other disciplines frequently need to understand performance management, performance appraisal, and performance measurement. This article has implications for managers and business practitioners who wish to evaluate the performance of subordinates with an appropriate performance appraisal technique.
- Performance management is a unique, continuous, and goal-oriented approach to evaluating and managing subordinate performance.
- Performance appraisal is the method by which an organization evaluates its employees’ job-related performance and growth.
- Performance measurement is how an organization monitors key aspects of its programs, systems, and care processes.
Management as a theory jungle alludes to the fact that nomenclature and concepts used in management disciplines share similarities that, if not adequately examined, could be misconstrued as identical when they are not (Brunsson, 2021). Performance management knowledge, particularly in management, human resource management, and industrial psychology, needs to be clarified (Tweedie et al., 2019). Due to its proximity to performance appraisal and performance measurement, performance management is a concept that has perplexed countless researchers over the years (McLaggan et al., 2021).
