In the changed business scenario where organizations are required to compete globally, benchmarks have become global. Organizational survival and excellence require not only meeting but setting global standards. Speed of change becomes a critical variable. Organizations have had to react fast, learn from their experiences and aim towards achieving world class excellence through constant learning and renewal. 360 degree has been found to be one such facilitator of change at the individual level.

Though it was started in mid-eighties at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad by T.V.Rao and team as Top Management Styles And Organization Effectiveness Program, it was not branded as 360 Degree Appraisal. Once it was branded in the US as 360 Degree Appraisal, it caught the attention of many corporations and today a large number of Fortune 500 companies use it in some form or the other. Experiences with it as a development tool have been good, though experience as an appraisal tool are mixed.

This book contains experiences of the Tata Group, Birla Group, Wipro, Birla 3M, Philips and many others. The Book also discusses issues dealing with performance management and approaches to make them effective.

This book has a comprehensive coverage of 360 degree feedback, performance management system, linking 360 degree feedback with performance management and finally pay strategies. The primary objective of TVRLS in compiling this book is to encourage more indigenous innovations and enhance learning through mutual sharing.
