  三、阅读理解(每题3分,共30分)

  (一)

  The promotion and development of performance management processes by HR can make an important contribution to knowledge management, by providing for behavioral expectations which are related to knowledge-sharing to be defined, and ensuring that actual behaviors are reviewed and, where appropriate, rewarded by financial or non-financial means. Performance management reviews can identify weaknesses and development needs in this aspect, and initiate personal development plans, which are designed to meet these needs.

  One starting point for the process could be the cascading of corporate core values for knowledge-sharing to individuals, so that they understand what they are expected to do to support those core values. Knowledge sharing can be included as an element of a competency framework, and the desired behavior would be spelt out and reviewed. For example, positive indicators such as those listed below could be used as a basis for agreeing competency requirements and assessing the extent to which they are met. The following are examples of positive behavior in meeting competency expectations for knowledge-sharing:

  . Is eager to share knowledge with colleagues;

  . Takes positive steps to set up group meetings to exchange relevant information and knowledge;

  . Builds networks which provide for knowledge sharing;

  . Ensures as appropriate that knowledge is captured, codified, recorded and disseminated through the intranet and/or other means of communication.

  Hansen et al (1999) mention that at Ernst & Young, consultants are evaluated at performance reviews along five dimensions, one of which is their ‘contribution to and utilization of the knowledge asset of the firm’. At Bain, partners are evaluated each year on a variety of dimensions, including how much direct help they have given colleagues.

  "T-group" stands for "training group," which is not a very helpful description. It is also referred to as sensitivity training, group dynamics, and group relations training. T-group has three aims:

  1. To increase sensitivity-the ability to perceive accurately how others are reacting to one's behavior.

  2. To increase diagnostic ability-the ability to perceive accurately the state of relationships between others.

  3. To increase action skill-the ability to carry out the skillful behavior required by the situation.

  In a T-group, the trainer will explain the aims of the program and may encourage discussion and contribute his or her own reactions. But he or she does not take a strong lead and the group is largely left to its own devices to develop a structure that takes account of the goals of both the members of the group and the trainer provides a climate where the group members are sufficiently trusting of one another to discuss their own behavior. They do this by giving “feedback” or expressing their reaction to one another. Member may not always accept comments about themselves, but as the T-group develops they will increasingly understand how some aspects of their behavior are hidden to them and will, therefore, be well on the way to an increase in sensitivity, diagnostic ability, and action skill.

  Follow-up studies have noted three principle areas of change following the attendance of trainees at an external T-group laboratory:

  1. Increased openness, receptivity, and tolerance of differences.

  2. Increased operational skill in interpersonal relations, with overtones of increased capacity for collaboration.

  3. Improved understanding and diagnostic awareness of self, others, and interactive processes in groups. T-groups have been attacked because of the possibility of negative or detrimental effects. But none of the follow-up studies has detected any significant problems. A more valid basis for doubt is that it has been difficult to prove that they have been cost effective for organizations who have used them on company or have strongly supported external programs.

  This criticism could be leveled at any other form of group training or, indeed, most off-the-job training. The degree to which it can be invalidated will depend on the effectiveness of the training design and of the trainer.

  T-group laboratories in their purest form are unlikely ever to become a major part of company training programs, but the group dynamics approach has valid uses in the modified forms.
