Abstract

This is the first of a two-case series (410-001-1 and 410-002-1). This case describes the transition of a small software organisation from an entrepreneurial firm to an established firm. The increasing number of employees, changed strategy and dynamic industry environment render the existing people processes inadequate to meet the needs of a growing organisation. In this scenario, the organisation decides to rework many of its HRM (human resource management) systems. This case focuses primarily on the performance management system at Nucsoft. It deals with the concerns regarding the existing performance management system and the initial efforts to change this system. This case can be used independently or in conjunction with case (B) that discusses the final system that was implemented by the organisation and the way forward from there. Case (A) provides information on the HR processes of a small software organisation and can be used to teach various topics such as: (1) recruitment and selection; (2) performance management; and (3) compensation etc for any basic HRM course.
