The objectives of performance planning can be studied at three different levels:
1. Organisational Level
- Defining and communicating the organization’s goals, objectives, missions, and strategies with the employees of the organization;
- Providing required training and resources and assisting the employees in accomplishment of desired goals and objectives;
- Ensuring that employees are provided with regular feedback; and
- Matching organizational objectives with job descriptions.
2. Manager Level
- Providing die employees with a chance to participate in goal setting exercise with a view of improving goal ownership and accountability standards;
- Defining and clarifying performance measures used for measuring employee’s performance in achieving the set goals and objectives;
- Providing training as and when required to the employee so as to enable him to perform as expected; and
- Providing regular ‘on-the-job’ feedback.
3) Employee Level
- Determining performance goals and objectives with the manager;
- Considering the manager as a mentor or guide rather than a judge;
- Accepting feedback from superiors; and
- Providing information on performance by developing self- efficiency.
