What beta readers say about it

Shirly Ronen Harel
Agile Coach

This book tackles one of the hardcore traditional procedures we are all engages in and for some reason taken for granted:  
The performance appraisals. This book seriously addresses and questions this issue.

Reading the book makes you feel that all of your past pains regarding organisation performance appraisals where not your imagination, they were all real. 

It all connects, something is really wrong with doing performance appraisal the way most organisations are doing it. But before reading this book i could not point it accurately out or I had hard time convincing management or HR why intuitively performance appraisals feels so wrong, so out of place , so ineffective, so time consuming…. Well, this book does it.

Contrary to what is said in the book this book is not just for open minded people. Fortunate, the book leads you beautifully toward understanding the concept and reality facts behind the idea of getting rid of performance review and open your mind to some new ideas. 

Stefano Porro
Agile Coach

I'm a beta reader of the new incoming book by Luis Goncalves about Performance Appraisals. What about this book? Luis tells to his readers why performance appraisals simply don't work using lots of real examples, historical notes, quotes by great leaders and entrepreneurs, and above all using all his long experience. 

He focuses on the importance of people coworking, and not people individual targets because a system is made by people that have to collaborate: using performance appraisals will cause an individual thinking, but if organisations want to be successful must move towards system thinking. If you are an entrepreneur, a manager or an employee and you want to help your organisation to grow and win, this is the book you must read! 

And when you'll read this book remember when Luis at page 10 says "I want to make the difference" - I'm sure that, like me, you'll think "He is on the right path!". After finishing this first part I say no more "I'm a beta reader", but "I'm a proud beta reader".
