At the University of New South Wales

At the University of New South Wales, a new system of performance management was introduced in 2009. All part-time or fulltime staff are now expected to participate in regular performance discussions. The system encourages staff to review their outcomes, establish development goals, and gain feedback on their performance in the light of required performance standards. The Performance Development Scheme (PDS) is an opportunity for managers and supervisors to support and encourage their staff and offers an invaluable opportunity to clarify any issues, concerns, or goals.
