Results of this research evaluation are primarily used for policy-making, personnel allocation, resource allocation, and large scale projects. It is concerned with program effectiveness and outcomes. There are stakeholders who may have an interest on how the program operates and politics tends to play a significant role in summative evaluation. Summative evaluation uses an evaluation assessment to help investigators determine if a program has the necessary qualifications. During the assessment, there has to be clear goals, follow and gather information on the program, monitor the program, develop logical flows for the program, and review the program to determine what aspects are working and what are not working with the program.

CASE FOR INTRODUCING PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT TO OUR PLACE OF WORK INTRODUCTION Performance Management can be described as a process by which organisations set goals, determine standards, assign and evaluate work, and distribute rewards (Varma et al 2008, cited in Carbery and Cross 2013). It can help align an organisation’s strategies to the day-to-day practices of its staff, and how those staff can influence the achievement of the organisations objectives through management of their performance. This report will make a case for introducing a performance management system in the place of work. It will address the objectives of performance management, outline the benefits and also examine a healthcare perspective in implementation of a performance

These are: internal and external alignment; simplicity; flexibility; decentralized control; a measurement process; greater links between pay and performance; feedback from multiple sources; senior management involvement and employee
To formulate a theoretical perspective for this study, accountability theory as conceptualized in Vance et al. (2015) provided a useful prototype. The study employed constructs of accountability theory to develop a testable research model that shows how identifiability, expectation of evaluation, awareness of monitoring and social presence together with information security culture can consolidate to nurture a culture of information security policy compliance in organizations. The next section of this paper explains how constructs accountability theory have been conceptualized in the study. 2.1.
Self-Efficacy: Implications for Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management is an article by Marilyn E. Gist. The aim of this paper revolves around ‘self-efficacy’ and how it is related to organizational behavior additionally it explores ‘self-efficacy’ and how it’s related to some theories by reviewing previous studies. Moreover it discusses the results obtained theoretically as well as the practical test that was executed of self-efficacy for human resources management and organizational behavior. Self-efficacy is defined as a person’s belief in themselves and their capability of performing a task and is considered vital. The three dimensions of ‘self-efficacy’ include magnitude, strength and generality.
The term Integrated Performance Management (IPM) is used to describe the practice of an organization for assessing how technology is used to improve operations across its departments. We could say that IPM is an organization’s efforts to achieve high performing MIS. The MIS should enhance communication between departments, employees and line managers, as well as exchanges with entities outside the organisation. The MIS should support the delivery of resources, including materials, equipment and everything needed for the production of its goods and services. The MIS should also provide mechanisms for recording information, as well as generating reports.
Creating an effective job evaluation policy and practices enable the organisation to act and decide objectively with regards to compensation. The objectives of evaluation define the overall goal of the organisation in administering job evaluation. For instance, the purpose might be to establish the grade level for a particular job or to prevent inequities. Next, the roles and responsibilities outline the expectations for each of the actors or groups involve in the job evaluation. The sample below shows the outline of the roles and responsibilities of the Job evaluation committee for HR Council
Project organizational culture (a direct influence) – various authors have researched the direct influence of project organizational culture on project success such as; organizational policies, procedures, rules, formal and informal roles (Cleland, 1999); top and line management supporting/attitude, monitoring, prioritization and project staffing (Kerzner, 2009, Andersen et al., 2009, Young & Jordan, 2008; Kearns, 2007; Tinnirello 2001; Doll, 1985); support of departments in the pursuit of project goals, employee commitment to the project goals in the context of balancing them with other, potentially competing goals, project planning – how managers evaluate it and how they view the outcomes of projects -the way work is estimated or how resources are assigned to projects, performance of project teams (Pinto,
