    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter in textbook/reference bookpeer-review


    This chapter defines performance management processes and provides an overview of its western origins. The stra­tegic importance of performance management in a global context is considered, and the benefits and problems asso­ciated with typical approaches to performance manage­ment are examined. Subsequently, the factors that impact on performance management in different cultural contexts are considered. Throughout the chapter regular face-to-­face contact, repeated opportunity for feedback, and per­formance follow-up are stressed as key factors that help contribute to a positive global performance management culture.
