Description - A Cognitive Approach to Performance Appraisal by Angelo DeNisi

Performance appraisal is acknowledged as one of management's most effective tools for good employee motivation, satisfaction and productivity. Not surprisingly then, there are plenty of books of the 'how to do' sort for managers, but are the methods described based on a sound theoretical knowledge? Do they correctly account for the biases and heuristics in memory, for instance? l A Cognitive Approach to Performance Appraisal is the account of a meticulous and extensive research programme into rater cognitive processes and their effects on the performance appraisal interview. Angelo DeNisi has conducted over 30 experiments both in the laboratory and in real life situations to investigate such important topics as the role of rater memory and the effect of liking some employees more than others. It is also the story of long term research: the high and low points, the successes and the pitfalls and the differences between work in the laboratory and the real world. l A Cognitive Approach to Performance Appraisal is relevant to all those researching in organizational psychology, especially in the field of appraisal. It will also be of interest to all psychologists whose work in the lab is criticised as of little use in applied settings, as it shows how the move from lab to field may be successfully undertaken.
