Most organizational leaders are locked into conducting annual or bi-annual performance reviews with their staff, even though they know the system is not working. Performance reviews are costly, time consuming and often a one-way monologue without follow-up. Organizations need an entirely new approach to managing performance. The End of the Performance Review is a thoroughly tested, distinctive alternative that draws on well-established principles of organizational behaviour. Based around Tim Baker's unique 'Five Conversations', each lasting ten minutes, the reader is offered a new model for performance management that better reflects the changing needs of employees and organizations. With a timely focus on fostering innovation, the book is practical and easy to use - featuring case studies, interviews and useful templates.
