Week four brings about the request for the development of a performance management framework plan for Landslide Limousine via Atwood and Allen Consulting firm. To develop a plan that will be beneficial to Landslide Limousine we will review specific aspects of the business philosophy and methodologies in terms of relations to performance management. In creating this performance management framework, we will use applicable information provided by Landslide Limousine as well as make some general assumptions. We will take recommendations that ultimately assist the client in developing their own Performance Management Framework to include suggestions of key performance indicators, reporting metrics, and the processes to maintain such resources.

This approach puts the business in control with leading best practice focused around reasonable application, exhibited through usage, and constantly refined by the customer 's encounters.
