In December 2017, we spoke with Alan Colquitt on the topic of re-inventing Performance Management (PM) within the contemporary digital work environment. As the conversation veered from surveillance systems to agency theory, a key theme began to emerge – the science behind PM is becoming more and more compelling. As a practice, PM is on the edge of superseding previously long-held beliefs, superstitions, and models that were developed during the post-industrial economic expansion of the 20th Century. However, the reality for many HR professionals remains a little more complex and many established PM models abound.
The following interview will be essential reading for any business professional interested in the new pathways PM will find itself traveling in the very near future.
