Performance appraisals...

Performance is a matter of efficiency, speed, accuracy and reliability. Every employee is accessed for this at least once a year.

The Big question is how you measure performance?
Do you go your Gut feeling?? Na… this is not acceptable. Come on man this is not scientific. Then how do you measure performance?

“Metrics based Management” Yes this is the way to Go. Then Big Question is which metrics you capture ( Man!!! Enough of Big Questions…). Is there a verified and certified metrics to capture Employee performance? Now this is once again a million or maybe more dollar question. Shut up!!!!... No more questions pleaseeeee…

Every five years we the people appraise our politicians. Which metrics or scientific tool we use to appraise our decision makers. The answer is simple:-None. Then should we say that we do not judge our politicians properly and it is against the spirit of Democracy. I don’t agree to this. I feel we are very Good in judging our politicians. This judgment is done without any scientific tool and metrics sheet.
So why the hell, we cannot adopt something like this in performance appraisals. I know what you are thinking (something on lines that … organizations will be doomed or something similar.) You may be right. This is Democracy. Everybody has a right to have his views.

Disclaimer: this article has nothing to do with the upcoming appraisal season for me.
