TiE Institute Session: Getting Performance Management Right @ 25th April 2014

April22

Managing employee performance at a start-up can be hugely challenging, with employees multi-tasking, making it difficult to set clear performance measures. With rapid growth, metrics change frequently and new goals and responsibilities get added frequently.

It is difficult to give individualized attention to employees and track their work activities. That said, managing performance is absolutely critical. With limited resources of startups, you want maximum bang for the buck. In large companies, under performers may disrupt goal attainment for their specific areas. But in a start up, an under performer could throw the entire company off track.

Start-ups battle with key questions on a daily basis related to performance management:
-How do I arrive at building the right scorecard for my organization?
-How do I effectively define the goals and objectives using tools like MBO etc?
-How do I build a high performance culture which incentives and rewards high performers?
-How can I using the performance management framework as a tool align resources, systems & employees to strategic objectives & priorities?
-How do I share feedback more effectively with employees which can reinforce the right behaviors and enhances motivation.

In an attempt to answer some of the above questions TiE institute is conducting an interactive session on the “Getting Performance Management Right”. The session will give you a comprehensive sense of the tools and frameworks for performance management.

The session will be conducted by a very experienced panel of entrepreneurs & experts such as Jyotirmoy Bose, CEO-White Spaces Consulting, Vivek Kapoor, Co-Founder, Dineout & Navyoug Mohnot, CEO, QAI.

Companies Act 2013 – Impact on Private Equity and Venture Capital Funds

December4

The recently enacted Companies Act, 2013 (the New Act) is a landmark piece of legislation
and likely to have far reaching consequences on all companies incorporated in India. The
erstwhile Companies Act, 1956 was in existence for well over fifty years and was lately seeming
quite ineffective at handling present day challenges of a growing industry and the complexities associated with the growing stakeholders’ interest.

The New Act promises to substantively raise the bar on governance and in comprehensive
form purports to deal with some very relevant themes. On the flip side, it appears to be quite
pervasive and thrusts greater responsibility and obligation on the Board of Directors and
the Management in Indian companies.

Amity Innovation incubator, Amity Campus, Noida.Companies Act 2013 is Organizing a special session on Thursday, 12th December 2013 from 3.00 – 6.00 pm. Impact on Private Equity and Venture Capital Funds and their portfolio companies’ through the following six themes:

• Rigour on ‘Increased Reporting Framework’
• Emphasis on ‘Investor protection’
• ‘Easing Restructuring’ of companies
• ‘Onerous Responsibility’ on Board
• Higher ‘Auditor Accountability’ Independent Director, Audit Committee, KMP
• Push on ‘Inclusive Agenda’ (CSR)
