Performance of Performance Reviews – Learning By Shipping

I like this article because it talks a lot about system effects, and the negative side-effects with so many things we do in this area even assuming good intentions. Put another way, it's "pushing the knife fight around": 'To measure performance it must be measured relative to something. Sales is the “easiest” since if you have a sales quota then your compensation is just a measure of how much you exceed quota. Such simplicity masks the knife fight that is quota settings and the process by which a comp sheet is built out, but it is still a relative measure.'

As much as any performance review/compensation system is maligned, having a system that is visible with a framework and level of cross-organization consistency provides many organizational benefits.
