In this article “Performance management practices, employee attitudes and managed performance”. According to Kagaari, Munene and Ntayi (2010), the purpose of this paper is to establish the relationship between performance management practices, employee attitudes and manage performance. They was approach by using a disproportionate stratified purposive approach, a sample of 900 employees was drawn from four public universities in Uganda and what they get in their findings is the paper reveals that performance management practices and employee attitudes are crucial for achievement of managed performance in public universities. However, this was a cross-sectional study that inherently has common method biases. Such biases could be minimised with replication of the study using a longitudinal study approach that would also unearth all salient issues that could have remained untouched. In addition, the paper emphasises the need for public universities to institutionalise result-oriented relationships and adapt in the external hyper changing environment and the paper calls for a new approach to managing employees in public universities with increasing demand for university education and stakeholder interests in delivery of cost-effective quality services.
