What Reviewers Are Saying
"A well-researched, cogent and real-world look at the practice, pros and cons of modern performance management"--Jamie Lawrence, Managing Editor, HRZone.com "There is a reason why Michael Armstrong's HR books represent a gold standard: they are both thorough and academically rigorous but benefit from real world experience and an informed perspective on practice. This book reflects the latest thinking on performance management but also points out, quite rightly, that the annual appraisal has in itself never been a catch-all solution."--Robert Jeffrey, Editor, People Management magazine "if you need advice on managing performance at the organizational or individual level, this is the book for you. It gives solid explanations, and offers advice you can use."--John Heap, Managing Director, Institute of Productivity; President, World Confederation of Productivity Science "About the previous edition: If you come from the school of thought that believes appraisals should be swapped for something a little more holistic then Armstrong will give you much food for thought."--Management Today "About the previous edition: It should be required reading for all line managers who propose that performance management is solely the job of the HR department, and for those HR 'dinosaurs' who say the same."--Training Journal
