Most organizational leaders are locked into conducting annual or bi-annual performance reviews with their staff although they know the system is not working. Performance reviews are costly, time consuming and often a one-way experience without follow up. Companies need an entirely new approach to performance management.

The End of the Performance Review is a thoroughly tested, distinctive alternative that draws on well established principles of organizational behavior. Based around Tim Baker's unique '5 Conversations', each lasting ten minutes, the reader is offered a new model for performance management that better reflects the changing needs of both sides of the employment relationship. With a timely focus on fostering innovation, the book is practical and easy to use – featuring case studies, interviews and useful templates.

    Comments about The End of the Performance Review:

    The End of the Performance Review is the most brilliant book I have read in the last 10 years on performance reviews. Dr Baker's concepts are easy to apply in the workplace and filled with practical illustrations. It provides an entirely new way of getting the best from people at work. I couldn't put it down. A must read for any manager.

    "Tim Baker's new book revolutionizes the way to view and conduct employee appraisals. His method is brilliant in its simplicity and highly effective in its approach. 'The End' for the traditional performance review but just the beginning for a groundbreaking new model."--Marshall Goldsmith, global leadership thinker and million-selling author or editor of 32 books, including the New York Times bestsellers, MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There
