The Management for Performance System (MPS) is an initiative that supports the University's goal to strengthen our leadership capacity and build a strong performance culture. The University's plan: ECU Engaging Minds; Engaging Communities. Towards 2020 provides the strategic direction for ECU. These strategic priorities provide the context and organisational outcomes for each Faculty/Centre's Operational Plan which in turn provides staff with an opportunity to align their individual and team objectives, performance and expectations with the desired outcomes of the University.
To be of significant value, MPS is an annual cycle integrating the University's overall planning framework and involves regular dialogue with your supervisor to plan and review your performance, followed by informal discussions throughout the remainder of the cycle to discuss work progress, outcomes, and professional development activities. You are encouraged to regularly review your work objectives quarterly and update your "My Work Plan" to reflect the changing priorities throughout the review period, as agreed with your supervisor.
A successful MPS process is a shared responsibility between you and your supervisor where you are encouraged to participate proactively. You will be supported and encouraged to achieve your work objectives by your supervisor, and your individual contribution to the University's performance will be recognised and rewarded.
Participating in MPS is mandatory for all permanent and fixed term contract staff employed at ECU, therefore understanding the process and working collaboratively with your supervisor and colleagues to achieve optimal value should be a priority for all staff.
