Managing employees' performance is central to the role of every manager. Yet few organisations or managers are satisfied with their performance management systems - and few employees look forward to their performance reviews. This discontent has two main causes: first, employees' performance is often managed in isolation from the plans and targets of the work group or business unit; and second, the organisation is using inappropriate systems and methods of performance management. Performance Planning and Review describes how systematic performance management - planning, monitoring, reviewing, rewarding and developing what individual employees and work teams do - is the key to organisational success in today's complex and competitive world. Using practical examples, the author outlines the options available to organisations and managers, and discusses how to work out what is best for your organisation. Performance Planning and Review has been popular with managers, human resources specialists, students and others since its original publication. This new edition has been substantially revised to capture the latest research and good practice. It includes extensive coverage of new techniques like 360-degree feedback, and to open up new areas such as performance planning and review for teams.

Traditional appraisal involves bosses assessing their staff. But they are often the ones who know the least about an employee's performance. You can hide things from your boss - it's harder to hide from your peers, subordinates, customers and suppliers. Peter Ward - who introduced the concept of 360-degree appraisal to Tesco in the mid-1980s - uses his experience to provide you with detailed practical guidance on implementing a 360 system in your workplace. He shows you: - where, why and how to adopt 360 - how to design, customise or purchase questionnaires - how to plan pilot and validate your new project - how to transform raw data into effective reports - how to present the results and facilitate change - how to deal with issues of confidentiality and linking to reward.

Forced ranking assesses employee performance relative to peers rather than against predetermined goals. It's a performance management tool that—when used right—has increased productivity, profitability, and shareholder value. Unfortunately, some firms have misunderstood what forced ranking is, or have implemented it poorly—resulting in confusion and controversy. In this hands-on book, renowned performance management expert Dick Grote dispels common misperceptions about forced ranking and offers a clear-headed, convincing argument for why it should be a necessary part of any robust performance appraisal system. Based on extensive research, case studies, and consulting experience, the book provides a practical framework for developing a forced-ranking system that is fair, humane, and effective. From establishing appropriate guidelines to accurately categorizing employees, to managing A, B, and C talent differently, Grote shows how managers can use this tool to identify future leaders, give honest performance feedback, and grow the talent that matters most to the firm's success. Transforming a controversial management practice into a practical and powerful leadership-development tool, Forced Ranking will help organizations and their employees reach new heights of performance success.
