Government statement on leadership contracts
Government Statement on Leadership Contracts

”Achievement is the most essential criteria in leadership. Government/state as an employer needs to combine the effectiviness, work guidance and support, assessment, development and holistic rewarding in the leadership process.”

”The aim is to improve the competence of individuals, organizations and the whole administration. The assessment of performance requires clear definitions of superiority conditions up to the highest positions.”

Government statement on leadership contracts1
Government Statement on Leadership Contracts

”The Leadership policy includes an active wage policy in order to get highly qualified management.”

”The personal targets of the highest managers/leaders will be clarified, supported and assessed by expanding the use of personal leadership agreements.”

Relationship between performance management and leadership contracts
Relationship Between Performance Management and Leadership Contracts

  • Performance agreement focuses on administrative organisations

    • If the manager retires, the agreement binds also the successor

  • Leadership contract is a legal agreement between two managers

    • Leadership contract does not bind the new manager

  • Leadership contract focuses on how a manager is able to perform himself/herself

  • Leadership contract increases strategic discussion and interaction, strengthens result orientation and the accountability

  • Leadership contract is more operational than the performance management agreement

  • Leadership contract includes also a merit payas a distinction to performance management agreement

  • Leadership contract is based on the performance agreement and budget fundaments

     coherence

Procuctivity (e.g. reformation policy, electric transactions, ways to produce, personnell quantity)
