Abstract:

This study focuses on the problems associated with the development and use of a labor performance measurement system in a white-collar environment. From the review of the current literature, a labor performance measurement system is feasible. However, comparing a performance measurement system that is currently in existence with the essential elements of such a system advocated by the literature identifies the difficulties that management faces in meeting the objectives of this type of system. The growth of the size of government has resulted in increased emphasis on productivity improvement. In order to achieve productivity improvement, a measurement system is a necessity. The measurement system should not be limited to the evaluation of efficiency but should include the evaluation of effectiveness in meeting organizational objectives. The integrated resources management system of the Defense Logistics Agency is used as a model to identify the essential requirements of a system if it is to be used as an evaluative tool. Using this system as the baseline for resource development in the budget process is dependent on its viability as an evaluative tool. Consequently, management efforts should be directed toward developing a measurement system with a high degree of confidence as an evaluative tool. Author
