A quick read, with a funny, hard edge.

I agree that there must be a better way to handle performance reviews, and I would be more than happy to drop them entirely - and I think that his proposal of a performance preview is worthy of exploration. in my 5 years as a manager, I don't think the performance review has ever changed any of my team's actual work. I don't think they're objective, and I don't think they are a great management tool.

Unfortunately, the author offers absolutely no hard statistics or facts to back up his claim that removing performance reviews will improve staff morale and performance - which makes it a bit tough to take it to your supervisors for discussion . . . More hard data is needed, rather than just anecdotes.
