Most organizational leaders are locked into conducting annual or bi-annual performance reviews with their staff although they know the system is not working. Performance reviews are costly, time consuming, and often a one-way experience without follow up. Companies need an entirely new approach to performance management.

The End of the Performance Review is a thoroughly tested, distinctive alternative that draws on well established principles of organizational behavior. Based around Tim Baker's unique "5 Conversations," each lasting ten minutes, the reader is offered a new model for performance management that better reflects the changing needs of both sides of the employment relationship. With a timely focus on fostering innovation, the book is practical and easy to use—featuring case studies, interviews, and useful templates.
