It’s been a great first week shadowing Emma at CM Tech. You have learned about actions management can take that lead to poor performance. You’ve read about significant developments in the history of management and how well they did or did not work at CM Tech, and even contemplated what the next big thing might be. Emma wants to be sure you fully understand all that you have learned and have a solid baseline of information for use in the new concepts you will be learning going forward. Thus, she has asked you to assemble a report that analyzes what you have learned so far.
Your report should include the following:
- What actions can management take to ensure poor performance? Support your assertions with examples and research.
- What is performance management and what has prompted such a keen interest in it?
- What are some of the most significant management breakthroughs in history? Share your experiences with at least three of them. If you haven’t experienced any element of the breakthrough items then share how they might have applied at CM Tech had you worked there.
- Explain how you and Emma can apply all of this information at CM Tech. How can all of your past experiences, knowledge of performance management, and of significant management breakthroughs to guide CM Tech strategy and future success? Support your assertions with examples and research.
Your report should outline the key concepts in each area listed above and provide examples as appropriate. Be sure your report is a minimum of 4 to 5 pages, includes an introduction and conclusion paragraph, title page, and references page. The title and references pages do not count toward the total page count.
The report should be formatted in APA style and be supported by a minimum of three scholarly references. Since CM Tech is a fictitious company, you may use great liberty in this assignment in creating or imagining the details needed in order to write your report.
