New tracks help demystify the performance management process

Pilot Software Inc., the original provider of operational performance management solutions has launched a newly-redesigned educational resource library, based on an August 2005 poll of customers, partners and prospects. With the need for straightforward performance management education revealed as the top finding in the survey, Pilot redesigned its educational resources in three, intuitive tracks: Get Started, Build it Out and Sustain Performance.

With many performance management projects already languishing, the goal of Pilot’s newly redesigned educational resources is to prevent organisations from creating unrealistic expectations resulting in delayed schedules and intangible benefits.

“As more and more vendors jump on the performance management bandwagon, organisations inevitably have become overwhelmed with propaganda,” said Jonathan D. Becher, CEO and president of Pilot Software. “As the original performance management vendor — with both the first-ever commercial and most developed U.S. federal agency implementations under its belt — we felt it was our duty to lend that experience in support of the real customer challenges of navigating the entire performance management lifecycle.”
Pilot’s free educational resource library, containing industry articles, white papers, recommended books and Web seminars, is available now at www.pilotsoftware.com/resources.
