Performance management and related metrics are common ground for operations, human resources, finance, leadership, and individual contributors, providing ongoing feedback to show what needs to be improved. Leadership can assign economic value to the intellectual capital created and applied in their workforce. Individuals are encouraged to sustain and implement new changes in behavior consistent with organizational goals. For human capital leaders, performance management is a system to improve supportive talent management processes, such as talent performance reviews and pay-for-performance compensation.
This track looks at strategic applications of performance management from the perspective of each stakeholder group. A panel of expert advisors explores best practices, sharing information with human capital professionals through webcasts, white papers, education, and other resources.
The Performance Management track's expert advisors are Bob Angel, President, The Gilford Group Limited; Laura Bradshaw, VP, Organizational Development & Learning, CIT; Jason Corsello, Research Director, Business & IT Services, Yankee Group; Jeff Higgins, Senior Director, Compensation and Benefits, The Irvine Company; James Holincheck, Research Vice President, Gartner Inc.; Jessica Kane, Manager, Talent Planning and Performance Management, Lowe's Companies; Will Roth, Manager, Organizational Performance, Textron; Kevin Tarrant, VP, Global Organization Effectiveness, Arrow Electronics; Bruce Walton, Senior Consultant, Technology Solutions Practice, Watson Wyatt; and Mary Lou Zwaan, Performance Management Program Owner, Wachovia.

"Board members, shareholders, and members of the management team are all looking to obtain measurable results from an organization's investment in talent," said Lars Dalgaard, Chief Executive Officer of SuccessFactors.
