Wednesday Forum - Performance Appraisal

While I did not get a big response from the first Wednesday Forum on delegation - some of-line comments only - I am going to continue the Forum to see if I can build it over time.

Last Friday (October 20) I discussed Designing a Good Performance Appraisal System. The post makes clear my own view that a lot of performance appraisal systems are not very good and may indeed have negative effects.

Is this a fair view? What has been your own experience with such systems? What do you think the major problems are? Have you seen systems that do in fact work well?
