Abstract

Performance appraisal (PA) systems are generally conceptualized as methods for managing individual behavior through administrative and developmental actions. In this paper, PAs are examined as a method of continuous job analysis (looking at the position rather than the incumbent). Evidence from a survey of employees and managers supports this view. Additionally, the concept of collaborative interaction is explored, and organizational effectiveness criteria are predicted to positively relate to this interaction between supervisor and subordinate. Hypotheses were supported, and limitations and implications of the study are discussed.
