BOOK REVIEW: Abolishing Performance Appraisals, by Tom Coens and Mary Jenkins

March 2, 2007 by Stacey Barr

5 Stars — Smashing those unchallenged assumptions about appraisal

If you grapple with performance appraisal, then it might be worth thinking through the assumptions that you have built your performance appraisal system upon. And that’s how Tom and Mary’s book can help. They describe a series of assumptions that most performance appraisal systems are based on, and they offer up some more useful (and more reality-based) assumptions that provide the foundations for a more effective alternative (not an improvement – a completely different concept altogether).

Even if you aren’t convinced to let go of traditional performance appraisal methods, you will still glean some valuable pearls from this book, that can help with problems you’re currently having with appraisal.
