There are three universal truths about traditional performance management. They are widely used, universally despised, and
are known to be ineffective. These reasons are cited in the recent spate of announcements from dozens of major corporations
who have abandoned their appraisal systems. As a result, many organizations are grappling with what to do instead. They have
adopted many interesting and innovative practices, but most are a random collection of activities that are not bound together
by a sound theoretical framework. This new approach is built upon a sound theoretical foundation, uses proven management techniques,
and offers a novel framework and tool for managers for regulating and enhancing the performance of their staff. Dozens of
ready-to-use templates and accompanying tools help make good management practice more accessible, practical, and effective.
Just as important, the new approach is both millennial- and remote worker-friendly as it incorporates features that speak
to how they work.
