Performance appraisals often leave companies and employees dissatisfied; the continuation of this methodology remains a mystery. Performance appraisals don't drive careers and are an incidental effect of other dynamic systems.

In essence, appraisals are the paper-shuffling ritual that sanctifies decisions already made. Learn why it's a legal myth that performance appraisals protect you from litigation; why appraisals instinctively focus on weaknesses, not strengths; why annually is too infrequent to evaluate and provide feedback to staff—and how the process can be improved and be more meaningful.
