Eliminating Performance Appraisals

The effectiveness of the performance appraisal is often a topic of debate. Read the Forbes article, “Eliminating Performance Appraisals”. Based on the content of the article, identify three key points related to the author’s position on the elimination of performance appraisals. From the view of the manager and using the concepts found in our text, prepare a rebuttal to the article discussing each of the key points you identified and define the reasons why the performance appraisal should not be eliminated. Develop a potential solution to the performance appraisal debate, keeping in mind the intent of the appraisal and the desired outcome for both the organization and the employees. Support your solutions with a minimum of one outside resource.

 

In your second discussion post, you are asked to read the Lawler article (see my commentary above) and respond with the following three parts in your post:

  1. Identify three key points related to the author’s position on the elimination of performance appraisals. List and cite these from the article.
  2. From the view of the manager and using the concepts found in our text, prepare a rebuttal to the article discussing each of the key points you identified and define the reasons why the performance appraisal should not be eliminated. Post a rebuttal to each of the three points, one or two sentences each should suffice.
  3. Develop a potential solution to the performance appraisal debate, keeping in mind the intent of the appraisal and the desired outcome for both the organization and the employees. Support your solutions with a minimum of one outside resource. This should be at least a full paragraph with outside support from a credible source. You need to propose a solution that addresses both the problems of the performance appraisal (as Lawler notes) and the merits. Can you think of a way of reaching middle ground?

To earn full points: Post at least 200 words and reply to at least two other students.
