In my previous post, I discussed the relationship between role conflict and performance. I suggested that all things being equal, role conflict might be the primary determinant of employee performance. Companies direct all sorts of resources gathering data for recruitment purposes. All things being about the same, much of that data collection is irrelevant. …Continue
It has been suggested the role conflicts can lead to poorer performance in the workplace. Below I present the general dynamics: more role conflicts equate to less performance.
Performance can be expressed empirically - as in the case above using a formal scoring scheme. On the other hand, a qualitative approach can be used:…Continue
The concept of efficiency is not always easy to grasp. People go to work. They do their job. They follow the pace. What exactly is efficiency in the scheme of things? I think it is important to be able to distinguish between how hard different workers are working. It is not really possible to discuss efficiency if this kind of comparison is not performed. Improving efficiency is about getting more from a person or process. Therefore in order to determine whether or not efficiencies…Continue
I often encounter blogs highlighting the amount of effort needed to obtain high-quality data for analysis. Many aspects of this effort seem reasonable to me: there might be cut-and-pasting, merging, parsing, restructuring, extractions, conversions, concatenations, and conditionals. There might even be coding embedded in the file containing loops, more sophisticated conditionals, and detailed algorithmic processes. All of these are relatively minor challenges that can be overcome…Continue
