Reliabilityof an internally conducted Staff Review

Accordingto (Shaw.p.) in his text book Quality and inHealthcare 6th Ed an internal staff performance improvement reviewis intended to accomplish a number of internal activities andpractices of an organization in an incorporated and controlled way.Therefore, in my opinion it expands cooperation and data sharing onperformance practices and undertakings. It also develop substantialefficiency and achievement of complete understanding of the wholeorganization. Again it allows well deployment of available resourceshence output is improved as wastage is minimized.

Onthe other hand, there is a fast and appropriate acquisition of afirst-hand information on advancement and performance levelthroughout the organization’s units. Similarly it minimizes cost ofmanagement in that resource management is achieved. It provides adirect outcomes to relevant stakeholders for consequent actions inthat orderly examination is generated. Finally, it offers a strictfollow-up for combined actions on issues that may require immediateadjustments or improvements.
