The most radical steps taken were to totally eliminate the appraisal forms and their rating scales and to request that managers not discuss pay increases during performance review sessions.

 
For this  Week Case Study, you will review the following case study. Upon thorough review of the case study, you will answer the questions at the end of the case study.
Performance Management Improvements for Bristol-Myers Squibb
Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) is one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical firms and is widely known for its innovative research. But the firm has not limited its innovations to products. Several years ago, BMS leaders decided that the company’s performance management system needed to be re-invented. Specifically, they determined that the existing performance appraisal process was not working. Managers were “form focused,” meaning that they were so concentrated on filling out the performance review forms, the content of the forms was not being used for employee coaching and based on development. Also, most of the attention of managers and employees was historical and based on what employees had done in the past. Little attention was being given to how employees could develop and improve in the future.
The most radical steps taken were to totally eliminate the appraisal forms and their rating scales and to request that managers not discuss pay increases during performance review sessions. Instead, a new “performance partnership” became the focus. At all levels of BMS, managers were trained to hold regular meetings with their employees. At these meetings managers and employees review performance goals expectations. Together they set expectations and timelines for accomplishing the goals. Rather than meeting just once a year, the performance partnership update occurs throughout the year.
The changes in the performance management system have led to several positive results. First, employees are more active participants, rather than just getting their ratings on forms and then passively listening to the managers. Also, a greater amount of time is spent on coaching because managers were trained on use of a guided feedback approach. This approach has led to more discussions in which employees and managers emphasize joint problem solving and goal achievements. Although the system takes more managerial and employee time, the coaching and employee involvement have created a more positive relationship and improved individual and managerial performance.
Case Study Questions
1. Discuss how this case illustrates the contrasts between the administrative use and developmental use of appraisals.
2. Identify some of the advantages and disadvantages of eliminating the use of appraisal forms and ratings.
It is not sufficient to state your opinions alone; you must back up your responses by applying human resource management concepts from the text with the case data that supports your findings. By writing your responses to the case study, you will be required to demonstrate how to integrate human resource management concepts with the case data, conduct research using the GMC Library, and properly cite sources using APA Style. You will be responsible for using a minimum of 2 scholarly/peer-reviewed sources. Textbooks are not considered scholarly/peer-reviewed sources; however, they may still be included as a supplemental reference.
The case study should have an APA title page and an APA reference page. The APA title page and APA reference page DO NOT count towards the minimum page requirement! Your body of work needs to be a minimum of 1 complete page in length. Note that an APA abstract page is NOT required!

25%. Goals & Integrative Learning Plan. Does the assignment include specific short and long-term goals, linking them to the project and future professional and civic goals, and identify how and where the students will gather this research?
25%. Social Change Connection.  Is there a solid, well-developed plan for sharing research findings to a diverse audience outside our IDS 4939 community? 
25%. Project Management Phased completion plan. Does the assignment include a specific and realistic schedule for work on the project through the proper use of a Gantt chart or alternative project management tool? If this is not a research p…, does the plan include the critical tasks needed to create the project?
