Abstract

Human capital is of paramount importance in the ICT industry. This paper analyses one of the elements which underlies effective management of human assets: performance assessment. This analysis uses the development of a common standard based on the tasks and processes outlined in People CMM, the standard in human resource management designed by the Software Engineering Institute. This framework is evaluated in different models related to IT Governance, such as COBIT and ITIL, as well as other related IT practices like CMMI for Development, CMMI for Acquisition, and CMMi-SVC. The results indicate that COBIT is the only framework that presents reliable coverage in relation to personnel performance assessment.
