Abstract

"In the past decade much has been written concerning the performance appraisal which can be defined as the systematic analysis of the individual with respect to his performance on the job. The appraisal's importance lies in the fact that its impact is felt in the areas of control, promotion, and managerial development all of which are essential for the progressive firm. This study is an attempt to offer something new and something different. The author offers a systematic study of industry in general with specific help from key corporations and utilities. His investigations encompass the three elements of appraising and specific problems in implementing sophisticated appraisal systems. The author in combining the expertise of academicians, personnel directors, and his own experiences emphasizes the major criteria of appraising managers to be the functions of managers (planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling) and on the individual's ability to accomplish predetermined objectives. In light of this study the author makes recommendations to industry concerning the implementation of an effective managerial appraisal system"--Abstract, page ii.
