1. Bux, Ciara. The relationship between cognitive tests and the academic performance of students on an MBA programme.

Degree: 2014, University of South Africa

The objective of this study was to determine if a statistically significant positive relationship exists between the cognitive tests (APIL and Critical Reasoning Test Battery - NCR2 and VCR2) and the academic performance of students on an MBA programme. A quantitative cross-sectional study was conducted on a non-probability purposive sample (N=329) of MBA students at an institution of higher learning in South Africa. A theoretical relationship was established between the variables. The empirical relationship revealed statistically significant relationships between the cognitive tests and academic performance on an MBA programme. The findings contribute valuable knowledge to the field of psychological assessment that can be applied in the selection of students for higher education. Advisors/Committee Members: Maloa, Frans (advisor).

2. Mbonambi, S'thembiso Samuel. An evaluation of a performance management system in a freight rail organisation.

Degree: 2016, University of South Africa

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the existing performance management system (PMS) in enhancing performance at this freight rail organisation (FRO). The focus of this study was to establish whether the performance management processes are effective in enhancing the individual performance level in this FRO. The performance management processes referred to in this study include conceptualising and exploring; performance management and its processes, the balanced scorecard (BSC) as a tool of performance management and explaining the relationship between performance management and a reward system within the FRO. A qualitative research design was used for this study to answer the research question. The research design consisted of a case study where thirty semi structured interviews were conducted with the first line managers, junior managers, middle managers and senior managers at this FRO. The interviews were transcribed, and research data was analysed using a content analysis method. This study yielded a number of benefits in terms of the research findings, conclusions and recommendations about the effectiveness of performance management processes, the BS and the relationship between individual performance and reward. As a result, the study will not only benefit management in dealing with a strategy and drive individual performance, but will also assist all levels of employees within the FRO and other organisations in understanding the day-to-day operational activities of performance management. It will also help human capital professionals, industrial psychologists at the FRO and other organisations in knowing and understanding the best practices to adopt, in managing their individual performance levels. Advisors/Committee Members: Maloa, Frans (advisor).

3. Mofokeng, Thapedi Jerry. Readiness of an engineering support services organisation for the implementation of a performance management system.

Degree: 2017, University of South Africa

Implementing a performance management system is a change process that requires that readiness for change is established as a pre-requisite. This study reports on the relationship between readiness for change and the implementation of a performance management system; that is the extent to which readiness for change influences the implementation of a performance management system. The study was conducted in an engineering support services private sector organisation with a footprint across South Africa. A random sample was drawn from the target population. A multiple regression analysis was subsequently conducted. The findings of this study reflect that readiness for change influences the implementation of a performance management system. Also, reflected in the findings is that the factors of readiness for change influence the implementation of a performance management system, namely business unit climate; job/task requirements; motivation to change; the personal impact of change; the emotional impact of change and change processes. In addition, the findings reflect that there is a statistically significant difference in readiness for change by tenure and by business unit. Advisors/Committee Members: Maloa, Frans (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Organisational change; Organisational readiness for change; Change management; Performance management; Performance management system
