There is a rich practitioner and scholarly history concerning the topic of performance management. Despite this rich history, debates remain concerning the usefulness of performance management and whether performance management is merely a new word for the longstanding practice of performance appraisal. In fact, some scholars and practitioners are even calling for an end to performance management practices.
In this webinar, we discuss the current debate concerning performance management and performance appraisal. We will also overview our recent research related to a review of the performance management literature (Brown, O’Kane, Mazumdar & McCracken, 2019). This review of the literature included over 230 articles, from more than 40 journals, over an 11 year timeframe. We overview the trends and findings of our review and conclude with a discussion of current gaps for future investigation.
