Performance Management System versus ACR
Tijo J, Member
What is the main difference between Annual Confidential Report (ACR) and the Performance Management System (PMS). I agree that the ACRs were ritualistic in nature. But, the process of PMS too have the same threat, if the same is implemented with full devotion. Is there any method to specifically to safe guard the PMS from above threat, within PMS itself?

PMS versus ACR

Both are okay and similar if applied with due diligence, care and devotion. If applied for the sake of it, PMS gives an "excuse" to both down-rate or uprate a person. Problem with PMS is that the targets must fit in the standard bell curve. In the case of a multi-unit, multi-location company, it follows that these heads-of-units who are being assessed seperately as a "different group" should also fall in this curve. This is simply not acceptable to these heads of sections who all uniformly insist that they should be rated A++. PMS here thus goes out of the window.

ACR is the report to which PMS gives the inputs. Both should be formulated with equal diligence keeping steady focus on the purpose of each document.
