With the exception of Harish Mehta , all seem to be producing at or close to the standards sets earlier in the year. Along with numerous computational errors , Harish’s work is characterized by low performance – often he does 20% less than the other clerks in the department. As you examine Harish’s work again you begin to think about some sort of remedial training in computerized accounting operations for people like him immediately.
