    Career Development Plan Part III Frank A. Cruz University of Phoenix Performance appraisals can be an important tool for both management as well as the employee, although I find that performance appraisals can be subjective. This is not to say that appraisals are not of importance if you are going to reward employees on their merit or performance. However, this can be a slippery slope when linking an employee’s pay with a performance appraisal. However, doing this can cause conflict between improving performance and deciding on increases. The goal of employee and managers improving perform

    Memo on Management Behaviour Managers must practice the art of getting things done through organisational resources (eg.workers, financial resources, information and equipment).At one time, managers were called bosses, and their jobs consisted of telling people what to do and watching over them to be sure they did it.

    Question 1: To begin with, it is important to give a definition of a deadline in order to highlight the concept. Generally, a deadline is “the time by which some task is supposed to be completed”.[1] Thus, a deadline determines a certain amount of time which can be either measured generously or rather strict. Therefore, people use this amount of time as an “indicator of how ambitious a project can be”.[2] Thus, in the usual case, a limitation can lead to a feeling of scarcity of time as a resource. In her article, Connie Gersick states that deadlines are strong psychological boundaries.[3]

    Human resource accounting (HRA) as an approach was originally defined as the process of identifying, measuring and communicating information about human resources in order to facilitate effective management within an organisation. It is an extension of the accounting principles of matching costs and revenues and of organising data to communicate relevant information in financial terms. The accounting of human resources can be seen as just as much a question of philosophy as of technique.
