MGTS 7605 Toyota Performance Management System
MGTS 7605 Individual Assignment Guide
Overview of the assignment
The purpose of the assignment is to evaluate a performance management (PM) system. It is
intended to demonstrate your critical thinking about the continuous process of planning
human resources, assessment of performance, and development of employees.
To start, find a PM system. It can be one you have personal experience of (i.e., used in your
current / previous workplace), one that is being used in a family / friend’s workplace, or
sourced from books, articles, or the internet. In evaluating the system, refer to the elements of
the assignment below:
• A description of the PM system: Describe the PM system you selected, including
what country / industry / organisation it belongs to. Descriptions should include how
the PM system functions in the context of work or business cycles, HR policies that
reflect the PM system, workplace practices, and other artefacts that characterise the
system used. MGTS 7605 Toyota Performance Management System.
• An evaluation of the PM system from the perspective of course concepts and logic:
Evaluate aspects of the PM system, by using course concepts (i.e., theories and ideas
discussed in class). Students should ideally refer to 10 academic journal articles to
ensure that their evaluation is grounded in scientific findings and theories. Attempt to
evaluate the PM system from as many perspectives as possible, including how the PM
system supports organisational goals, motivates employees, how it promotes fairness
and justice, represents an ongoing process, promotes high performance, and how it
can lead to the development of employees. Also think about the appropriateness of the
PM system, given professional / industry / national / cultural expectations and norms.
• Supporting documents: You should include as an appendix some documentation of
PM system, which can be in the form of official documents, manuals, transcribed
interviews, or other sources. If you are not sure how to document a PM system,
contact the lecturer for guidance. If available, attach job descriptions relevant to the
PM system you are evaluating. MGTS 7605 Toyota Performance Management System.
• References: In addition to in-text citations, you should include a reference section,
ideally with 10 or more academic journal articles. You should use the Academy of
Management Journal style (http://aom.org/publications/amj/styleguide/) throughout.

throughout your assignment. Students will lose marks for copying and pasting others’ work
