Annual performance appraisals have the potential to be a dynamic and powerful method for managing employee performance. However, the results are typically less-than-ideal. Instead of a single performance appraisal event, leaders should use a strategy for ongoing Performance Management. Performance Management involves establishing a systematic process that managers can use to support and develop employees.
