Recent Research on Performance Management: Does Anything Work?

Presentation content

This presentation explores the research on performance management practices and their effectiveness that hhas been carried out by Gerry Ledford and colleague at the Center for Effective Organisations in the US. The focus of the presentation is on the following research projects:

  • Survey of cutting edge practices for WorldatWork
  • Quasi-experimental study of tatingless appraisal in an insurance firm
  • Two studies of performance feedback culture

Particular focus is placed on the use of ratingless appraisals and whether there is any benefit in using this technique to evaluate performance. If your organisation is already using ratingless appraisals, or if you are thinking of ditching ratings altogether, this will be a valuable resource.

All studies mentioned in the presentation can be accessed in full at the the Cutting-Edge Performance Management Hub on the CEO webiste.

Download the presentation for an overview of the research.
