EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 Most organization has a performance appraisal program that has evolved over
time and is likely not meeting the needs of employees and managers.
 Many competing Performance Appraisal theories and practices exist making
development of an effective program difficult. However, done well, a strong PA
program reinforces organizational culture and help emlpoyees achieve high
levels of performance.
 Every strong Performance Appraisal program has three elements performance
tracking informal, feedback and formal appraisal.
 Build on these elements to customize your program to your organizations goals
and values:
Informal coaching is the single most significant factor in easing retention and development
talent.
o Forced ranking and forced distribution are techniques that work well in
competitive environments. Avoid them in team based departments.
o 360-degree evaluation helps to improve people management abilities.
Stay away from using for manager compensation or disciplinary
purposes.

INTRODUCTION

Performance Appraisal is a process supporting the use of human resources in an organization.


It is possibly management’s most powerful tool of controlling performance and productivity
of human resources in the organization. Used effectively, appraisal system can have
tremendous strategic potential for governing employee behavior and, in turn, organization’s
direction through its dynamic links to selection, training, career-path planning and reward
systems.

Over the period, the scope of performance appraisal has grown significantly. Its traditional
focus has been enlarged to include not only the individual’s behavior on the job but also his
functioning as an integral part of the organization.

The main utility of the appraisal system lies in its being an adjunct of sound personnel
administration; it furnishes the base material on which placements, promotions, further
training and education, etc. should normally depend. Performance appraisal helps the
organization evaluate the overall effectiveness of its own programme of management
development.

DEFINITIONS OF PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL:

According to Alford and Beatty, “Performance appraisal is the evaluation or appraisal of the
relative worth to the company of a man’s services on his job”.

According to Flippo, “Performance appraisal is a systematic, periodic and so far as humanly


possible, and impartial rating of employee’s excellence in matters pertaining to his present
job and to his potentialities for a better job”.

According to Deal Yoder: “All formal procedures used in working organization to evaluate
personalities and contribution and potentials of group member.”

6
A formal definition of Performance Appraisal is that, “It is the systematic evaluation of the
individual with respect to his or her performance on the job and his potential for
development.”

The regular (usual annual) process where an employee’s performance for the year is assessed
by manager and/or employee. It is only one part of the performance management approach.
Usually means the same as "performance review"

According to Douglass: Performance appraisal is a method of acquiring and processing the


information needed to improve an individual employee’s performance and accomplishments.

Characteristics of performance Appraisal

 Performance Appraisal is a process consisting of a series of steps.


 It is the systematic examination of an employee’s strengths and weaknesses in
terms of a job.
 Used in the study. The same approach is adopted for all jobholders so that the
results are comparable. Performance Appraisal is a scientific or objective study.
Formal procedures are
 It is an ongoing or continuous process wherein the evaluations are arranged
periodically according to a definite plan.
 The main purpose of performance appraisal is to secure information necessary for
making objective and correct decisions on employees.
 Appraisals are arranged periodically according to a definite plan.
 Performance evaluation is not job evaluation.

Need for performance appraisal:

 Provide information about performance rank based on which decision regarding


salary fixation, promotion, transfer and demotion are taken.
 To prevent grievances and in disciplinary activities.
 Provide information which helps to counsel the subordinate.

7
 Provide feedback information about the level of achievement and behavior of
subordinates.
 Provides information to diagnose deficiency in employee regarding skill, knowledge,
determine training and development need and to prescribe the means for employee’s
growth provides information for correcting placement.

Functions of performance appraisal:

 Identification of the areas of training and development.


 Helps in reward allocation.
 Provide the opportunity to review the strengths and weakness of the
employees.
 It helps in career planning and personnel development.
 Helps in establishing credibility of the selection procedure.
 Act as a motivation factor.
Advantage of performance appraisal:

 It overcomes the communication barrier.


 It will remove the inherent weakness of the appraisal system i.e., subjective
assessment of vague and abstract performance targets, unclear guidelines for appraisal
etc.
 There will be an objective analysis of traits of both the superior and subordinate.
 There will be change to subordinate to express his views even after performance
appraisal.

Essentials of an effective Performance Appraisal:


To be effective, a performance appraisal system should satisfy the following requirements:

(1) Mutual Trust:

An atmosphere of mutual trust and confidence should be created in the organization


before introducing the appraisal system. Such an atmosphere is necessary for frank

8
discussion of appraisal. It also helps to obtain the faith of employees in the appraisal
system.

(2) Clear objectives:

The objectives and uses of performance appraisal should be made clear and specific.
The objectives should be relevant, timely and open. The appraisal system should be
fair so that it beneficial to both the individual employee and the organization. The
system should be adequately and appropriately linked with other subsystems of
human resource management.

(3) Standardization:

Well-defined performance factors and criteria should be developed. These factors as


well as appraisal form, procedures and techniques should be standardized. It will help
to ensure uniformity and comparison of ratings .The appraisal techniques should
measure what they are supposed to measure. These should also be easy to administer
and economical to use. The appraisal system should be performance based and
uniform .Employees should be made fully aware of performance standards and should
be involved in setting the standards.

(4) Training:

Evaluators should be given training in philosophy and techniques of appraisal. They


should be provided with knowledge and skills in documenting appraisals, conducting
post appraisal interviews, rating errors, etc.

(5) Documentation:

The raters should be required to justify their ratings. Documentation will encourage
evaluators to make conscious efforts minimizing personal biases. It will also help to
impart accountability for ratings.

(6) Feedback and participation:

Arrangements should be made to communicate the ratings to both the employees and
the raters. The employees should actively participate in managing performance and in
the ongoing process of evaluation. The superior should play the role of coach and

9
counselor. The overall purpose of appraisal should be developmental rather than
judgmental.

(7) Individual differences:

While designing the appraisal system, individual differences in organizations should


be recognized. Organizations differ in terms of size, nature, needs, and environment.
Therefore, the appraisal system should be tailor-made for the particular organization.
The needs of rates in terms of feedback, mobility, confidence and openness should
also be considered.

(8) Post appraisal interview:

After appraisal an interview with the employee should be arranged .it is necessary to
supply feedback, to know the difficulties under which the employees work and to
identify their training needs. The later should adopt a problem solving approach in the
interview and should provide counseling for improving performance

(9) Review and appeal:

A mechanism for review of ratings should be provided .the review may be made by a
committee consisting of line executives and personnel experts .The committee will
see whether the raters are unusually strict or lenient .it may compare ratings compare
rating with operating results and may requires the raters to give a specific examples of
tangible proof .Differences if any are discussed and dissent is recorded .Provision
must be made for an appeal in case the employee is not satisfied with the ratings.

Uses or importance of Performance Appraisal:

 Performance Appraisal provides valuable information for personnel decisions


such as pay increases, promotions, demotions, transfers and terminations.
 It helps to judge the effectiveness of recruitment, selection, placement and
orientation systems of the organizations.
 It is useful in analyzing training and development needs. It also identifies
individuals with high potential who can be groomed up for higher positions.

10
 Performance Appraisal can be used to improve performance through appropriate
feedback, working and counseling to employees. It serves to stimulate and guide
employee’s development.
 Performance Appraisal facilitates human resource planning, career planning and
succession planning.
 It promotes a positive work environment which contributes to productivity.
 A competitive spirit is created and employees are motivated to improve their
performance.
 Systematic Appraisal of performance helps to develop confidence among
employees. Employee grievances can be reduced.

Approaches of performance appraisal:


Performance appraisal is a multistage process involving several activities, which can be
administered using a variety of approaches. Some of these approaches are considered below,
based on Einstein and LeMere-Labonte, 1989; and Monga, 1983:

 Intuitive approach: In this approach, a supervisor or manager judges the


employee based on their perception of the employee’s behavior.
 Self-appraisal approach: Employees evaluates their own performance using a
common format.
 Group Approach: The employee is evaluated by a group of persons.
 Trait Approach: This is the conventional approach. The manager or supervisor
evaluates the employee on the basis of observable dimensions of personality,
such as integrity, honesty, dependability, punctuality, etc.
 Appraisal based on achieved results: In this type of approach, appraisal is
based on concrete, measurable, work achievements judge against fixed targets
or goals set mutually by the subject and the assessor.
 Behavioral method: This method focuses on observed behavior and observable
critical incidents.
Factors Affecting Performance Appraisal:
It is always advisable to make a preliminary survey of the following constraints within which
the employees of an organization are working.

11
1. Environment constraints:

There are several environmental constraints which may be outside the control of a worker
and to ignore this fact in judging his performance would be unjust. For e.g., the quality of
raw material in an organization may deteriorate over a period or the machinery may break
down unexpectedly. As a result both productivity and quality may suffer. But if selection of
materials and maintenance of machinery are done at higher levels in the organization the
performance appraisal of the worker should not be affected.

2. Organizational leadership:

The style of the top leadership of an organization should also be looked into. It is the nature
of leadership at the top which determines to a large extent the loyalty and commitment of
employees to the goals of an organization. Effective top leadership orients and motivates the
entire organization for better performance. Employees at every level become highly
performance conscious. Performance appraisal under such conditions is liked by everybody.
But in opposite conditions it is considered an imposition or structure.

3. Interdependence of sub-system:

Since every organization is a big system composed of a number of interdependent sub-


systems, the success or failure of any one sub-system has got to be interpreted in the context
of all other sub-systems to which it is related. For e.g., the sub-standard output of the
production department may be due to the poor quality of purchases made by the Purchasing
Department or the trouble may be at some higher level sub-system where planning for the
production and purchase departments has been done.

It is precisely because of this interdependence of sub-systems that suggestion is often made to


start performance appraisal from the apex. This leads to more systematic and logical cause-
and-effect tracing of performance at all levels within the organization.

4. Organizational structure:

Initiative, drive and innovation thrive best in a flexible structure. These qualities do not
receive encouragement in a rigid structure. This is because in this type of structure the
authority to approve innovation is often placed several levels above the people who
innovate. This makes the proposal pass from person to person and robs the information

12
reaching the ultimate decision makers of much of its logic and understanding. What is
needed is a direct relationship between the doer and the approver. No matter how
strategically wise or strong a boxer is if he has to call New Delhi to clear each punch during
his fight in Udaipur, he is doomed. In rigid structures ponderous planning and controls make
people give up innovating and become resigned and bitter. Rather than beg for the
acceptance of their innovative ideas they take their ideas and creativity home and become
dead wood at work.

Problems / Limitations of Performance Appraisal:


(1) Errors in Rating:

Performance appraisal may not be valid indicators of performance and potential of


employees due to the following types of errors:

a) Halo Effect:
It is the tendency to rate an employee consistently high or low on the basis of overall
impression. One trait of the employee influences the rater’s appraisal on all other
traits.
b) Stereotyping:
This implies forming a mental picture of a person on the basis of his age, sex, caste or
religion. It results in an over-simplified view and blurs the assessment of job
performance.
c) Central tendency:
It means assigning average ratings to all the employees in order to avoid commitment
or involvement. This is adopted because the rater has not to justify or clarify the
average ratings. As a result, the ratings are clustered around the midpoint.
d) Constant error:
Some evaluators tend to be lenient while others are strict in assessing performance.
The tendency may be avoided by holding meeting so that the raters understand what is
required of them
e) Personal bias:
Performance appraisal may become invalid because the rater dislikes an employee.
Such bias may arise on the basi regional or religious beliefs and habits or interpersonal

13
conflicts. Bias may also be the result of time. Recent experience or first impression of
the rater may affect the evaluation

f) Spillover effect:
This arises when past performance affect assessment of present performance. For
instance, recent behavior or performance of an employee may be used to judge him.
This is called regency.

1) Lack of reliability:
Reliability implies stability and consistency in the measurement. Lack of consistency
overtime and among different raters may reduce the reliability of performance
appraisal. Inconsistent use of measuring standards and lack of training in appraisal
techniques may also reduce reliability. Different qualities may not be given proper
weightage. Factors like initiative are highly subjective and cannot be quantified.

2) Incompetence:
Raters may fail to evaluate performance accurately due to lack of knowledge and
experience Post appraisal interview is often handled ineffectively.
3) Negative approach:
Performance appraisal looses most of its value when the focus of management is on
punishment rather than on development of employees.

4) Multiple objectives:
Raters may get confused due to too many objectives or unclear objective of
performance appraisal.

5) Resistance:
Trade unions may resist performance appraisal on the ground that it involves
discrimination among its members. Negative ratings may affect interpersonal relations
and industrial relations particularly when employees/unions do not have faith in the
system of performance appraisal.

Performance Appraisal Process (Elements):

The Performance Appraisal process follows a set pattern and it consists of the
following steps:

14
(1)Establishing Performance standards:

The Appraisal process begins with the setting up of criteria to be used for appraising
the performance of employees. The criteria are specified with the help of job analysis
which reveals the contents of a job. This criteria should be clear, objective and in
writing. It should be discussed with the supervisors to ensure that all the relevant
factors have to be included. Where the output can be measured the criteria is clean. If
work performance cannot be measured, the personal characteristics which contribute
to employee performance must be determined. These characteristics include work
quality, honesty, cooperation, team work, job knowledge etc. These standards should
be indicated on the appraisal form. Appraisal form should be carefully designed and
printed. In addition, who is to do the appraisal and how frequently appraisal is to be
done should also be decided.

(2)Communicating the standards:

The performance standards specified in the first step are communicated and explained
to the employees so that they come to know what is expected of them. The standards
should be conveyed to the evaluators. The reactions of the employees to the standard
should be obtained. If necessary the standards may be revised in the light of feedback
obtained from the employees and the evaluators.

(3)Measuring Performance

Once the performance standards are specified and accepted, the next stage is the
measurement of actual performance. This requires choosing the right technique of
measurement, identifying the internal and external factors influencing performance
and collecting information on result achieved. The performance of different
employees should be so measured that it is comparable. What is measured is more
important than how it is measured.

(4)Comparing the actual with the standards:

Actual performance is compared with the predetermined performance standards. Such


comparison will reveal the deviations which may be positive or negative. Positive
deviations occur when the actual performance exceeds the standards. On the other

15
hand, excess of standard performance over the actual performance represent negative
deviation.

(5) Discussing the appraisal:

The result of the appraisal are communicated to and discussed with the employees.
Along with the deviations, the reason behind them are also analyzed and discussed.
Such decisions will enable an employee to know his weaknesses and strengths.
Therefore, he will be motivated to improve himself. The impression the subordinate
received about his performance has an impact on his subsequent performance. The
impact may be positive or negative depending how the appraisal feedback is presented
and discussed with the employee.

(6) Taking corrective actions:

Through mutual discussions with employees, the steps required to improve


performance are identified and initiated. Training, coaching, counseling, etc. is the
example of corrective action that helps to improve performance.

Methods of performance appraisal:

1. Individual evaluation method:

 Confidential report.
 Easy evaluation.
 Critical incident.
 Checklists.
 Graphic rating scales.
 Behaviorally anchored rating scale.
 Forced choice method.
 Management by objectives.

2. Multiple person evaluation method:

 Ranking.
 Paired comparison.

16
3.Other method:

 Group appraisal.
 Human resource accounting.
 Assessment centre.
 Field review.

Various Methods of performance appraisal:

a. Graphic Rating Scale :


The graphic rating scale is the simplest and most widely used appraisal
technique. This method is performed by assigning a rating for an employee for
each of several different traits. The rating usually on a scale of 1 to 5, or
descriptive words such as excellent, good, fair, and poor. In most cases, a
numerical value is placed on the various ratings and an overall score is
calculated. This score is then compared to a pay scale to determine the amount
of raise, if any, the employee will receiver supervisor may tend to rate the
employee low in all areas.

b. Alternation Ranking Method :


The alternation ranking method is when the supervisor pools all the employees
together, and picks the best employee, then the worst, and keeps going back and
forth until all the employees are ranked best to worst.

c. Paired Comparison Method:

This method compares each employee to all other employees on how well they
perform each trait. Each employee is put on a chart that represents one trait.
Then one employee is rated better than, or worse than all of the rest of the
employees until a comparison is made of how well that one employee performs
relative to each of the other employees. .

d. Critical Incident Method:

17
In this method, the supervisor keeps a record of uncommonly good and
uncommonly undesirable incidents that happen over the course of the review
period. At the end of the period, the supervisor and employee sit down and
discuss each incident at length so the employee can get an idea of what the
supervisor likes and dislikes about the job that was performed.

d. Management by Objectives Method (MBO):

The Management by Objectives Method involves setting specific goals with each
employee and at the end of the review period the manager and employee review
what progress is made. These goals represent specific and measurable targets,
meaning that these goals cannot be vague.

There are six steps involved in MBO: Setting organizational goals; Setting
departmental goals; Discussing departmental goals; Defining expected results;
Performance reviews; and providing feedback.

f. 360 DEGREE METHOD:

The appraiser may be any person who has through knowledge about the job content,
contents to be appraised, standards of contents who observe the employee while
performing a job. The appraiser should be capable of determine what is more
important and what is relatively less important. He should prepare report and make
judgment without bias. Typical appraisers are, supervisors, peers, subordinate,
employee themselves, users of service and consultants. Performance appraisal by all
these parties is called 360 degree appraisals.

 Components of 360 Degree Appraisal:


The components of 360-degree appraisal are described as under:

1. Self Appraisal
Self-appraisal is a very important part of the 360 degree appraisal system because it gives the
employee absolute freedom to look at his strengths and an opportunity to assess the
performance. Self-appraisal also provides an opportunity to the employee to express his
career moves for the future. Another important area of self-appraisal is the concern for self-

18
renewal and development of the employee.
2. Superior Appraisal
Here the focus is to provide constructive feedback on employee’s performance and his
development needs. It is the responsibility of the superior to put carrier aspirations of the
employee in proper perspective.

3. Peer Group Appraisal

Peers play an important role in the life of an employee in the organization. They can also
provide a deep insight into the personality make up, attitude and style of working of the
employee. Peers both from within the department as well as from the other departments
which are directly connected with the working of employee’s department are to be included
in this system. Peer appraisal must strive to get the feedback on

 employee’s working style,


 sensitivity towards others,
 spirit of co-operation and collaboration, and
 Ability to work as a team member.

4. Subordinate’s Appraisal
It signifies two things. Firstly, is a clear expression from the organization that it encourages
openness and that feedback is a two-way process? Secondly, it is a systematic recognition of
the fact than employee’s subordinates do play a vital role in his appraisal. Thus, the purpose
of subordinate’s appraisal is to get first hand assessment of how the subordinates perceive
their superior to be in terms of:

 delegation of authority,
 guiding and training of subordinate,
 motivation of subordinates
 Team building, etc.

METHODOLOGY USE IN ACME


'5S' methodology is the name of a workplace organization methodology that uses a list of five
Japanese words which are seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu and shitsuke.Transliterated or
translated into English, they all start with the letter S.

23
The list describes how items are stored and how the new order is maintained. The decision
making process usually comes from a dialogue about standardization which builds a clear
understanding among employees of how work should be done. It also instills ownership of
the process in each employee.

Phases of 5S
There are 5 primary phases of 5S: sorting, straightening, systematic cleaning, standardizing,
and sustaining.

1. SORTING
Eliminate all unnecessary tools, parts, instructions. Go through all tools, materials, etc., in the
plant and work area. Keep only essential items. Everything else is stored or discarded.

2. STRAIGHTENING OR SETTING IN ORDER


There should be a place for everything and everything should be in its place. The place for
each item should be clearly labeled or demarcated. Items should be arranged in a manner that
promotes efficient work flow. Workers should not have to repetitively bend to access
materials. Each tool, part, supply, piece of equipment, etc. should be kept close to where it
will be used (i.e. straighten the flow path). Seiton is one of the features that distinguish 5S
from "standardized cleanup". This phase can also be referred to as Simplifying.

3. SWEEPING OR SHINING OR CLEANLINESS (SYSTEMATIC


CLEANING)
Keep the workplace tidy and organized. At the end of each shift, clean the work area and be
sure everything is restored to its place. This makes it easy to know what goes where and
ensures that everything is where it belongs. A key point is that maintaining cleanliness should
be part of the daily work - not an occasional activity initiated when things get too messy.

4. STANDARDIZING
Work practices should be consistent and standardized. Everyone should know exactly what
his or her responsibilities are for adhering to the first 3 S's.

5. SUSTAINING THE DISCIPLINE

24
Maintain and review standards. Once the previous 4 S's have been established, they become
the new way to operate. Maintain focus on this new way and do not allow a gradual decline
back to the old ways. While thinking about the new way, also be thinking about yet better
ways. When an issue arises such as a suggested improvement, a new way of working, a new
tool or a new output requirement, review the first 4 S's and make changes as appropriate.

It is important to have continuous education about maintaining standards. When there are
changes that affect the 5S program such as new equipment, new products or new work rules,
it is essential to make changes in the standards and provide training. Companies embracing
5S often use posters and signs as a way of educating employees and maintaining standards.

KAIZEN
Kaizen (The German word for "efficiency" or Japanese for "improvement" or "change for the
better") refers to philosophy or practices that focus upon continuous improvement of
processes in manufacturing, engineering, supporting business processes, and management. It
has been applied in healthcare, government, banking, and many other industries. When used
in the business sense and applied to the workplace, kaizen refers to activities that continually
improve all functions, and involves all employees from the CEO to the assembly line
workers. It also applies to processes, such as purchasing and logistics that cross
organizational boundaries into the supply chain. By improving standardized activities and
processes, kaizen aims to eliminate waste. Kaizen was first implemented in several Japanese
businesses after the Second World War, influenced in part by American business and quality
management teachers who visited the country. It has since .spread throughout the world.

CHAPTER3:

LITERATURE REVIEW

 In 1965, Zadeh [1, 94, and 95] introduces Fuzzy set as a multi-valued logic, that
allows intermediate values to be defined between conventional evaluations like
true/false, yes/no, high/low, etc. Fuzzy theory easily formulates notions like rather tall
or very fast and maintains fuzzy nature of data to a possible extent. In order to apply a
more human-like way of thinking in programming of computers [96] fuzzy theory is
more important.

This dissertation classifies performance appraisal system into three stages.

o First stage is to collect appraisals of an employee from supervisors or end


users in standard form;
o second stage converts linguistic appraisal or objective type of appraisals into
a crisp number
o And finally grades employees according to their appraisals.

So an effective fuzzy performance appraisal system depends on a method to


collect assessments, assessment strategy, converts assessments into useful fuzzy
or crisp information and grade or rank procedures to assess employees and their
effectiveness with respect to organizational expectations.

 This part discusses about various evaluation systems on students performance


in an examination. This idea helps to improve the process of evaluating
employees performance appraisal. Jauch and Glueck [97] developed measures
of research output both objective and subjective in order to identify which one
is effective to evaluate research performance. They discussed relative
effectiveness of different measures to evaluate research performance of
professors.

34
 Biswas [98]discuss about grading method of students performance in an
examination. He introduce Fuzzy Evaluation Method (FEM) in which they use
six objective points following uniform distribution ,to evaluate each answer of
a student. It is a computer based fuzzy approach, where it uses a vector valued
marking system. Later Biswas [98] generalizes FEM and introduces
Generalized Fuzzy Evaluation Method (GFEM) in which they adopt a matrix-
valued marking. GFEM evaluate each answer of a question from four different
aspects and assigns a mark. Even though it observes a students’ knowledge
more objectively, in every stage they determine separate grades for each
question applying a rounding off to the next by grade. This rounding off
results in an error at each step of evaluation and thereby causes a very huge
error in the final total grade.

 Various appraisal systems are available in literature. They differ in purpose,


implementation procedure and output expectations. Chen and Lee [99]
propose two methods for appraisal on objectives. They eliminate drawbacks in
the Biswas [98] method to some extent.
 Cheng and Yang [100] present an approach for evaluation, based on similarity
measure between interval-valued fuzzy sets. But it results in a huge
computation process and an evaluator takes more time to fill in grade sheets.
 Echauz and Vachtsevanos [101] discuss about difficulties associated with
translating a set of crisp scores into letter-grades.
 Mesak and Jauch [102] have developed a model by which college and
university administrators might evaluate performances of major components
of a faculty work: research, teaching, and service. They determine overall
faculty performance as a function of teaching achievements, research
achievements, and service achievements under a sub-criterion related to
those achievements.
 Ellington and Ross [103] propose a teaching evaluation scheme to assess
university teachers. This scheme accounts for a
teachingskillsprofilethatenablesanacademicstafftoundertakeself-rating with
respect to a set of basic criteria for effective performance in teaching and
other activities related to it.

35
 Agrell and Steuer [104] propose a multi-criteria evaluation system for
individual faculty member’s performance, which consists of five criteria
which are research output, teaching output, external service, internal service,
and cost. Their aim is to identify promotional candidates, reveal underlying
problems in managerial consistency, and they suggest categorizations for
faculty groupings

 Meho and Sonnenwald [105] analyze relationship between citation ranking


and peer evaluation to assess faculty research performance with a multi-
criteria approach. They use two sources of peer evaluation data: citation
content analysis and book review content analysis. This study presents many
subjective and objective criteria on the area of research performance and
concludes that citation ranking can provide a valid indicator for comparative
evaluation of senior faculty research performance

 Sproule [106] mentions reporting errors, inadequate sample size, and


accuracy errors of data as reasons of under determination of teaching
performance by student evaluations. Sproule [106] suggests that committees
in universities, whose mission is a justification related to reappointment, pay,
and compensation. Otherwise their decision rule becomes invalid, unreliable,
and flawed

 Paulsen [107] says that purpose of evaluating teaching effectiveness can be


grouped as formative and summative. Formative evaluation tries to provide
informative feedback to assist faculty in improving effectiveness but
summative evaluation tries to help managerial decisions related to pay
incentive, awards, honors, etc.

 Weistroffer et al., [108] propose a structure to model a faculty performance


appraisal that considers both quality and quantity of faculty outputs in the
areas of teaching, scholarship, and service. They identify the criteria related
to measuring quantity of performance outputs and assign quality weights.

 Adnan and Minwar [109] propose a framework for empirical evaluation using
fuzzy logic for performance appraisal systems.

 Huberty [110] consider factors such as instruction skills, research capacity,


service intension, and administration activities for evaluation of a faculty

36
 Jing et al., [111] demonstrate that fuzzy set theory successfully solves
multiple criteria performance appraisal systems.

 Deutsch and Malmborg [112] show that a fuzzy representation is useful to


compare alternative collections of performance measures. They present an
example of performance evaluation of university professors.

 Honetal.,[113]propose a multi-attribute method based on fuzzy weighted


average .

 Moon et al., [114] propose a methodology using fuzzy set theory and
electronic nominal grouping technology for multi-criteria assessment in
group decision making of promotion screening.

 Yee and Chen [115] propose a model to evaluate staff performance of an


Information and Communication Technology (ICT) based on specific
performance appraisal criteria. They use multi factorial evaluation model to
appraise employees.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

RESEARCH
The research design of this project is exploratory. Though each research study has its own
specific purpose but the research design of this project on performance appraisal system is
exploratory in nature as the objective is the development of the hypothesis rather than their
testing.

37
METHODOLOGY
Every project work is based on certain methodology, which is a way to systematically solve
the problem or attain its objectives. It is a very important guidelines and lead to completion of
any project work through observation, data collection and data analysis.

“Research methodology comprises of defining & redefining problems, collecting,


organizing & evaluating data, making deduction & researching to conclusions.”

RESEARCH DESIGN
Research design refers to “framework or plan for a study that guides the collection and
analysis of data.” A typical research design of a company basically tries to resolve the
following issues.

a) Determining data collection design


b) Determining data methods
c) Determining data sources
d) Determining primary data collection methods
e) Developing questionnaire
f) Determining sampling plan

(1) EXPLORATIVE RESEARCH DESIGN


Explorative studies are undertaken with a view to know more about the problem.
These studies help in a proper definition of the problem, and development of specific
hypothesis is to be tested later by more conclusive research design. Its basic purpose
is to identify factors underlying a problem and to determine which one of them need
to be future researched by using rigorous conclusive research designs.

(2) CONCLUSIVE RESERCH DESIGN:

Conclusive research studies are more formal in nature and are conducted with view
eliciting more precise information for purpose of making marketing decisions.

These studies can be either

(a) Descriptive
(b) Experimental

Thus, it was mix of both the tools of research design that is, explorative as well as
conclusive.

 Employees were satisfied and there skills were enhanced after performance appraisal

SUGGESTIONS

The purpose of the performance appraisal is to focus on the employee’s goals, objectives, and
professional development. Recent trends are to flatten organization reflecting empowered
people and teams that know how to apply principles and identify core processes in many
different circumstances and situations. On account of this my recommendations \suggestion
to the company are:

51
1. The 2% of respondent responses shows that they are not aware about performance
appraisal. They should be aware about that how they can take promotion and greater
responsibility through better performance
2. New performance appraisal technique such as 360-degree performance appraisal
system should be used
3. Performance appraisal should be viewed as a process, and not simply as the creation
of ubiquitous standards.
4. When employees are working on projects, there must be an appraisal after each
assignment has been completed.
5. Rest 50% employees should also be motivated so that there performance can be
appraised.
6. Team coordination skills of the employees should be increased so that there
performance appraisal can be done.
7. Employees must be told about the existing appraisal system.
