Welcome to the DIT Performance Management & Development System (PMDS)

PMDS provides an opportunity to create and deliver on a shared vision for the Institute with the engagement of all staff. It is an opportunity for managers and staff to work together to clarify the Institute’s strategic objectives and the team development plan and to identify the role each staff member plays in delivering these objectives.

PMDS also supports staff and managers to work together to review the staff member’s achievements against previously agreed goals and objectives.  It is an important opportunity for managers to acknowledge past achievements and successes, to identify areas where staff members need support, and to agree goals and a training and development plan for the coming year.

Staff Development provides training and support for reviewing managers to understand the PMDS process and how to facilitate the Performance Development Plan (PDP) meeting. Training is also provided for staff to support them to prepare for their PDP meeting to ensure they understand the process and can accurately identify their past achievements and future training and development needs.


PMDS training is provided for both managers who have responsibility for conducting PDP meetings, and for staff to help them prepare for their PDP meeting and get the most from the process.  Check out our Calendar of Events for the following workshops:

  • PMDS Workshop for Managers
  • PMDS General Preparatory Session
