Should I Create a Performance Improvement Plan for My Direct Report?

Issue #317
17 Nov 2022
Has anyone here ever been 'pipped'? One of the most annoying aspects of corporate culture is false purpose of performance improvement plans, which in too many cases are really just procedural protection for the employer who has already made the decision to fire you. This post is for the non-cynical however, because it provides a decent framework if you actually want to retain your direct report through improvement of performance. Obviously of no use to Elon Musk but probably will be for some of us here.
