Bryan --

I strongly suggest you check out the web site of LO list member
Robert Bacal at
Once there, check out his "white paper", "A Critical Look at
Performance Management Systems: Why Don't They Work?

It's a powerful critique, and has answers to your second question
about blending development and performance.
