How to Ditch Performance Reviews

Are annual performance reviews necessary? A recent study shows that 90% of HR professionals don’t think performance appraisals are accurate or effective in improving productivity. If that’s the case, why do we still do them?

Dr. David Burkus, a highly regarded business school professor and author of Under New Management, challenges the traditional and widely accepted principles of business management and proves that they are outdated, outmoded, or simply don’t work — and reveals what does. Drawing on decades of research, David proves that not only are many of our fundamental management practices wrong and misguided, but they can be downright counterproductive.

Set aside an hour to listen in as David discusses why accepted management practices don’t work—and how innovative companies are changing the rules. Learn how expectations and feedback should factor in to your growth and development. Discover the differences between learning goals and performance-prove goal orientations, and the value of informal discussions for creating innovation and boosting morale.
