How’s your performance evaluation system working for you? There’s very good evidence to suggest it is ineffective. If performance evaluations were a drug, they would not get FDA approval—at least as they’re done in most organizations.

Yet we keep on doing them in pretty much the same ways we always have, based on nothing more than tradition.
