Why Another Book On Performance Management
When I was asked to write this book, I asked myself whether the world needed yet another book on performance management and performance appraisal. There has to be hundreds if not thousands. After some thought I realized that despite all the books already out there, somehow we (in companies and organizations) weren't "getting it". I get to talk with many people in my consulting, public speaking and training work. And the story I keep hearing is consistent. Managers don't like doing performance management and appraisal and avoid it like the plague.

Employees hate performance management and appraisal with what approaches a passion. Human resources personnel spend a lot of their time "bugging" managers to get the paperwork done.

Huge (I mean huge) amounts of time, money and energy are spent either doing performance management badly, filling out forms, or avoiding it.

It's expensive. The costs are certainly in the millions.

Most of the time the investment of money and time is WASTED. What happens is a paperchase is created, where there may be lots of activity and few ood outcomes. In fact, sometimes performance management results in DESTRUCTIVE outcomes and damages productivity and workplace harmony.

Above all, my conversations and work indicated we have missed the point. We think of performance management and appraisal in the WRONG way. If truth be told we've lost our way and forgotten that performance and productivity is largely determined by PEOPLE, and that managing performance and even performance appraisals are human processes. It's about people, pure and simple. NOT forms, NOT rankings, NOT rewards, but about people and clear respectful communication that takes place within a partnership between each manager and employee.

So, I thought that, yes, the world does need yet another book on performance management and appraisal. Not because it hasn't been said before, but because we've forgotten it has been said. So I wrote this book!

Our intent (and I include my editors and the folks at McGraw-Hill and CWL Publishing) was to create a readable, yet meaty book for managers,supervisors, human resource professionals, academics and students. Writteninformally, it's an enjoyable read, but is specificenought to guide people through the process without watering down the ideas. It's meaty enough to be used in university settings.

I think we have succeeded in creating a book which is practical but not dumbed down, and a book that will be valuable to everyone in any kind of organization. Whether you have a performance management system now, whether it works or not, you will benefit from this book. It will help you refocus your energies on performance activities that will work and save you time and money!
