The power of effective performance feedback (positive/constructive)  could be the single-most powerful tool that management has to mobilize the energy of every employee toward the achievement of strategic goals. The vehicle most often used by organizations to provde performance feedback is the annual performance review.  This annual performance review has become for most, a dreaded annual exercise that is widely seen as a waste of time.  Yet, organizations continue to invest billions in revamping and revising their annual performance reviews.  While having a good system and adequate forms are important, they should not be the focus of increasing performance management within your organization.
