In sophisticated, well-managed organizations, performance appraisal is the single-most powerful instrument that management
has to mobilize the energy of every employee toward the achievement of strategic goals.
Used poorly, performance appraisal becomes a dreaded annual exercise that is widely seen as a waste of corporate time and resources.
But when used well, the procedure can focus every person’s attention on the mission, strategy, vision, and values of the
organization. It makes it possible to answer the two questions that every person asks: what do you expect of me, and how am I doing at
meeting your expectations. And it differentiates among outstanding, solid, and marginal performers.
Getting It Right
The most-admired organizations use performance appraisal right. They have the know-how for setting meaningful goals, assuring
effective execution, assessing individual contributions and deficiencies, identifying and retaining top talent, and rewarding employees
on a meaningful, systematic basis.
If exemplary performance is important to your organization, there is no faster or more controllable way to gain dramatic improvement
than by implementing a performance appraisal process that is right for your company and your people.
