Most performance reviews suck, here is why
In The Principles of Scientific Management published in 1911, Taylor explained that workers should be individually monitored. He added that the “system of management” should measure their performance in order to increase the overall output of the factory. The white-collar was the only “competent man,” and he was responsible for defining the best way to “eliminate every unnecessary movement” and then increase individual efficiency. It was a revolution for the time, and it strongly improved both the US’ and Europe’s production.
