The Engagement Matrix, The PM’s Guide to Effective Performance Management

Performance management. Do you dread the thought of it? Why can’t everyone do exactly what is required precisely when it’s needed? And then there’s the same old complaints about managing without authority! Created by Leadership Techniques, LLC, The Engagement Matrix provides a process to guide the project manager who typically has responsibility for getting work done by employees over whom he or she has no authority. Often with very little background in human resources management we are required to resolve complex interpersonal issues and relationships. Using this tool we can quickly assess an individual’s performance and determine the appropriate actions to ensure that we treat our best people as they deserve to be treated while appropriately managing and coaching for continuously improving performance.

Uniquely cross-qualified in HR and PM (Lisa and Dave are both PMP’s and Dave holds the SPHR credential), Leadership Techniques, LLC has combined basic HR principals (in which many project managers lack experience, background, or qualifications) with a process that we can easily and quickly use to assess current behavior and performance to compare with the desired results and manage, rather than react to, the gap between desired performance and actual results, and lead your team to continual improvement and success!
