Most organizations and employees are dissatisfied with the performance appraisal process. So, the process remains a curiosity why this methodology continues to exist. Performance appraisals don’t drive careers; they are an incidental effect of other dynamic systems. In essence, appraisals are the paper-shuffling ritual that sanctifies decisions already made.

  • Identify why it’s a legal myth that performance appraisals protect you from litigation or in court.
  • Determine why appraisals instinctively focuses on weaknesses, not strengths.
  • Recognize why “annual” is far too long to evaluate and provide feedback to knowledge workers.

Major Topics:

Examples of effective replacements to the annual performance appraisal:

  • Peter Drucker’s Manager’s Letter
  • After Action Reviews
  • Key Predictive Indicators
