Performance Management
Why do even best of great strategies fail?
A study of 275 professional portfolio managers reported that the ability to execute strategy was more important than the quality of the strategy itself (“Measures That Matter,” Ernst & Young, Boston, 1998) (“M Th t M tt ” E t Y B t In the early 1980s, a survey of management consultants reported that less than 10 percent of effectively formulated strategies were implemented successfully (Walter Kiechel, “Corporate Strategists Under Fire,” Fortune, Dec. 27, 1982). A 1999 Fortune article, in a cover story of prominent CEO failures, concluded that the emphasis placed on strategy and vision created a mistaken belief that the right strategy was all that was needed to succeed The authors concluded that “…in succeed. in the majority of cases—we estimate 70 percent—the real problem isn’t [bad strategy]…it’s bad execution.” (R. Charan and G. Colvin, “Why CEOs Fail,” Fortune, June 21, 1999). , , )

...Performance Evaluations Abstract An engineer at a manufacturing plant received a poor review and reacted even more poorly to the results. He is now to be evaluated again but the current evaluation methods seem inadequate. There are advantages and disadvantages to using any performance evaluation method but a mix of both objective measurements including productivity and timeliness and soft skills provide a better solution to view an employee’s whole performance. The paper reviews some of these methods and makes suggestion at improving the evaluation methods currently used. Performance Evaluations An engineer at a manufacturing plant received a poor review and reacted even more poorly to the results. He is now to be evaluated again but the current evaluation methods seem inadequate. The plant manager has reviewed and learned about the 360-degree evaluation method and wonders if it might be a better solution than the current method. There are other evaluation methods that should be considered and revised before evaluating any employee. A combination of methods will probably work best. The engineer is currently evaluated based on friendliness, neatness of workspace and attitude. The first point of concern is that attitude and friendliness are the same thing or at least very closely related. Another concern is that neatness of workspace is not a quantifiable objective; it cannot be easily measured. The engineer frequently has stacks of paper and a......

Citibank Performance

...1 CITIBANK* Frits Seegers, directeur général de la Citibank (Californie), réunissait son équipe de direction afin d’examiner les performances et de décider des primes relatives aux directeurs d’agence de Californie. L’évaluation de la performance de James McGaran était la prochaine à venir. Frits se sentait mal à l’aise à son sujet. McGaran était le directeur de la plus importante agence de la région de Los Angeles et ses résultats financiers étaient impressionnants. Un an plus tôt, il aurait reçu une notation « au dessus du standard » et une prime maximum. Mais l’année passée la division californienne de la Citibank avait introduit une scorecard de Performance pour souligner l’importance d’un ensemble d’indicateurs divers dans la réalisation des objectifs stratégiques de la division. Parmi les nouveaux mesureurs introduits figurait un indicateur de la satisfaction de la clientèle. Malheureusement McGaran avait réalisé un « en dessous du standard » sur cet indicateur. Frits regarda Lisa Johnson, la directrice de zone à laquelle McGaran reportait. Frits avait lu les commentaires de Lisa (Annexe I). Ces commentaires étaient très positifs mais Lisa n’avait pas voulu donner de recommandation finale avant d’avoir discuté avec Frits. Elle savait que le cas de James serait examiné de très prés par beaucoup de directeurs au sein de la division. L’agence du quartier financier. James McGaran était directeur de la plus importante des 31 agences de la région de Los Angeles. Située......

...com/business-school-cases/citibank-performance-evaluation-case-analysis/ Citibank: Performance Evaluation Case Analysis November 21, 2010 James McGaran’s Performance Evaluation. Doing the year-end performance evaluation for James McGaran, the branch manager of the flagship office in the Los Angeles area, was probably one of the most difficult experiences in all my years with Citibank in the capacity of area manager. James has been not just an exemplary employee in our area, but really someone who other branch managers could always look up to. His career with Citibank has been a quick progression through the ranks from the assistant branch manager to the manager position at the most important of all the bank branches in the Los Angeles area – the Financial District office. Until this year his performance exceeded expectations in every single year. His financial results have been truly impressive. However with the introduction of the new performance scorecard which reflected the company’s broadening of the evaluation scope to customer satisfaction score, it became obvious that this was essentially the only area where James’ performance was lacking. At the same time Frits Seegers, President of Citibank California, was convinced that customer satisfaction indicator was important not only for meeting ever-increasing expectations of highly-sophisticated clients, but also for achieving strategic goals of the division, and staying competitive. Since five of the six......

Citibank: Performance Evaluation

...deposits, loans, money market investments, etc., that may be summarized on a single bank statement. What is the new Performance Scorecard? While financial measures typically were the way Citibank measured success in the past, they recognized a need to measure customer service as well, and thus developed a Performance Scorecard. The six different types of measures the Performance Scorecard evaluated were:  financial  strategy implementation  customer satisfaction  control  people  standards Citibank felt it was necessary to update the previous evaluations to include non-financial measures because they recognized that these measures may in fact be more critical to the long term success of the franchise. As a result, by adding the non-financial measures to the current measures, Citibank was able to reflect competitive dimensions in the bank's strategy. Why is the Customer Satisfaction Score metric an important component? Customer satisfaction indicator was important not only for meeting ever-increasing expectations of highly-sophisticated clients, but also for achieving strategic goals of the division, and staying competitive. Citibank’s current strategy focused on customer service as a key differentiator. Hence, Customer Satisfaction measure is considered as critical to the long term success of the bank, as well as a leading indicator of future financial performance. If customer satisfaction were to deteriorate, it was only a matter of time before it showed in the......

...As you requested, I have finished my evaluation of Kyle Houston, who works as management consultants in Anders. I suggest that you have a second thought about promoting Kyle as the team leader in Dallas. My opinion is based on the observation of his performance during the three months' strategic planning with a division of RPG Financial Services. The ratings and evaluations collected from 15 team members, with whom Kyle worked during the last three months, support my observation. The ratings in the evaluation cover three aspects in Kyle’s performance in team works: contributing, listening, and the facilitating group problem solving. Kyle’s ability in team working is evaluated fairly according to these aspects. Kyle has an open characteristic, which attributes to his high rating in contributing part of the evaluations with four of the rating score at three points.. Kyle is very enthusiastic and passion in his work. Many of the evaluations point out that Kyle is willing to provide his own opinions and never gets lazy on his jobs. In short, he is the most active, even aggressive member in the team. However, from my observation, he puts quantity before quality of his ideas. From the very beginning to the end of a meeting, he would raise his hand to express his own perspective every three minutes. He is very initiative and has a lot of ideas, but he expresses them so soon that some of the ideas seem to lack considerations. This behavior would lead to greater proportion of low......

...productivity will decrease and he would not show interest in teamwork. There are various techniques which are used for evaluating the performance of employees: 1. Essay appraisal method Here, the evaluator puts in writing a short essay offering estimation of the potencies, flaws and vigor of the subject. In order for this technique to be carried out without prejudice, it is essential that the evaluator is aware of the subject and should have intermingled with the employees being assessed. These results of the essay are not easy to be contrasted, as the span and matter of the essay show discrepancies between evaluators. 2. Management by objectives Here, the employees are required to lie down or assist in laying down their personal performance objectives. This technique eliminates the feeling amongst employees that they are being evaluated by dishonestly lofty values. At present, this technique is being extensively made use of, however, not for all time in its true morale. Although the employees are conferred with, in many situations, management results in forcing its values and aims. Also, employees, in many cases, may not be fond of being authorized or directed. 3. Graphic rating scale Here, the person is evaluated on the quality of the work done by him. It may be rated as average, above average, outstanding or unsatisfactory. This evaluation can also be based upon the attributes of the employees especially those attribute that can be observed such as dependability,......

Citibank: Performance Evaluation

...acct 6201 | Measuring performance: The Balanced Scorecard | Citibank: Performance evaluation | | | | In an age in which financial performance is dependent on more than the management of tangible assets, it is necessary to move beyond traditional financial performance measurement and evaluate the adjacent behaviors which ultimately lead to improved financial success. Citibank has moved forward by introducing a new performance scorecard evaluation system. While it maintains a traditional focus on financial goals, additional measures meant to align the behaviors of employees throughout its organization with the company’s overall strategy are included. In particular, Citibank realizes that financial success is significantly dependent on overall customer satisfaction. The scorecard is meant to reinforce behaviors that will bring upper management’s strategy and vision to fruition. Lisa consistently rated James above par throughout the year in all categories besides Customer Satisfaction. Although she may have been less than apt in critically reviewing his actual performance (i.e. across Strategy Implementation), it would be less than genuine to suddenly alter the standards by which James is being evaluated. On the six measurements for which Lisa must evaluate James, she should rate him as follows: Financial: Above Par Strategy Implementation: Above Par Customer Satisfaction: Below Par Control: Above Par People: Above Par Standards: Above Par Overall:......

Performance Evaluation

...Topic: Analyzing Performance Evaluations involves evaluating three characteristics: a Bank’s liquidity, profitability and efficiency. A short-term creditor, such as a bank, is primarily interested in liquidity---the ability of the borrower to pay obligations when they come due. The liquidity of the borrower is extremely important in evaluating the safety of a loan. A long-term creditor, such as a bondholder, looks to profitability and solvency measures that indicate the Bank’s ability to survive over a long period of time. Long-term creditors consider such measures as the amount of debt in the Bank’s capital structure and its ability to meet interest payments. Similarly, stockholders look at the profitability and solvency of the Bank. They want to assess the likelihood of dividends and the growth potential of the stock. Performance managers review and analyze the firm’s Performance Evaluations periodically, both to uncover developing problems and to assess the firm’s progress toward achieving its goal. These actions are aimed at preserving and creating value for the firm’s owner. Performance ratios enable Performance managers to monitors the pulse of the firm and its progress towards its strategic goals. Although Performance Evaluations and Performance ratios rely on accrual concepts, they can provide useful insights into important aspects of risk and return that affect share price, which management is attempting to maximize. Performance Evaluation analysis is a......

Citibank Performance Evaluation

...Citibank Performance Evaluation Case Assignment – 7 pts. a. If you think that James’ customers are actually more or less satisfied than the level of satisfaction indicated by the scores on the Customer Satisfaction Score metric. Briefly discuss how you feel about this and why you feel as you do. From the exhibit, we can’t see the specific standards to measure customers’ satisfaction. Thus we can’t identify what part of service performed not well. On the other hand, customers rated not only their branch, but also other Citibank services such as ATM’s that were out of the control of branch managers. At this condition, we need to look for other performance items related with customer service to evaluate the real performance. Look at those items “Customer Interaction/Focus”, “Business Ethics/Integrity”, and “Community Involvement” and “Employee Satisfaction”. As we can see, all these items are more or less related to the customers’ satisfaction. All the items are rated a higher score than the customers’ satisfaction. Through all the year, all the items are rated above par expect the customer interaction in the third quarter, which is on the par. In all, I think the real customers’ satisfaction would be better than the score showed in the report. b. Now assume that it is 2015 and that Citibank has been using the Performance Scorecard as described in the case for the past 18 years. You are asked how you would change the......

Claudiu CICEA, Academy of Economic Studies Bucharest, Romania email : claudiu.cicea@man.ase.ro University Professor PhD. Daniela HINCU, Academy of Economic Studies Bucharest, Romania email : daniela.hincu@man.ase.ro Abstract Commercial banks represent the core of the credit for any national economy. In turn, the credit is the engine that put in motion the financial flows that determine growth and economic development of a nation. As a result, any efficiency in the activities of commercial banks has special implications on the entire economy. That is why we consider very useful to present an analysis of possibilities for evaluating the performance in the commercial banks. The management of every commercial bank must establish a system for assessing investment performance which suits its circumstances and needs and this evaluation must be done at consecutive intervals to ensure the achievement of the Bank's investment objectives of hand; and to know the general direction of the behavior of investment activity in the past and therefore predictable as it in the future on the other hand. The main objective for this paper is to analyze some quantitative methods used in assessing the performance of investment activity in commercial banks......
