"Thanks again for the PMS 2.0 briefing yesterday. It was very interesting. And I could see that there were levels of dissatisfaction with performance appraisal among the other participants. It made for an interesting evening. I hope that there is some follow up from some of the participants on this subject." 



This Executive Briefing will help participants to gain knowledge about how to transform their organizations’ performance management system (PMS) that works for the 21st century irrespective of organizational size, industry, and geographic location.


In the late 1970s, “performance management” or PM was first coined by Dr. Aubrey Daniels (the Father of Performance Management) to describe a system for managing both behavior and results. This gave impetus to the eventual widespread adoption and attained a fad-like status of Dr. Peter Drucker’s Management-by-Objectives (MBO) which he first introduced in 1954.

Since then, the practice of performance management has remained essentially the same centering on performance reviews or appraisals and linking its results to compensation and even employee development.

However, we all now recognize that since the turn of the century the “work” and the “workplace” have changed significantly brought about by globalization, technology, demographics, and generational changes. Has your organization’s performance management system kept up with the change?

If you are interested and looking for ways to keep your PMS up to the demands of the 21st century and transform your organization to become a high-performing one, this Briefing is a good start towards your journey to an agile and rating-free performance management system. 

Learning Objectives

After attending this Executive Briefing, participants should be able to:

  •  Understand why traditional performance management systems no longer deliver their intended promises;
  • Develop the business case why you should stop doing performance appraisals and know what to do instead; and,
  • Learn what other companies are doing in transforming their performance management processes suited for the 21st century.

This Executive Briefing will be valuable to organizational leaders such as CEOs, Presidents, Country Managers, and Business Unit (BU) Heads as well as people leaders such as HR professionals, Line Managers and Supervisors who are keen and looking for ways transform their organizations and achieve breakthroughs in performance through the use of agile and rating-free performance management system.
