This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of the performance management capabilities offered as part of an integrated talent management solution through the IDC MarketScape model. This research is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor's success in the marketplace and help anticipate the vendor's ascendancy. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses vendors relative to the criteria and one another and highlights the factors expected to be the most influential to success in the market, both in the short term and long term.
"Some high-profile organizations like GE, Adobe, and Deloitte are beginning to rethink performance management and are eliminating performance ratings and annual reviews altogether. Instead, they have moved to a more continuous feedback process with hopes that it will yield better visibility into true performance and provide improved business outcomes," says Lisa Rowan, research vice president, HR, Talent, and Learning Strategies for IDC. "Reviews will not widely disappear overnight, but employers are beginning to look for better ways to more continually track and engage on performance."
