Replying to LO13756 --

Peter Block has called the annual performance appraisal an artifact of a
colonial culture. Peter Scholtes wrote an article in the National
Productivity Review, Summer 1993, v12, titled Total Quality or performance
appraisals: choose one, which expounds on Demings' stance on these mostly
useless processes. I found it on the Montgomery County (Maryland) Public
Library electronic bulletin board.
