Performance Appraisal for Employee with Superior Skill
« on: February 24, 2009, 11:21 AM »
As an HR director, can anyone give me an insight on methods that could be used by managers to provide effective performance management feedback to employees whose knowledge is superior to their own.

Thank you

Performance Appraisal is an overall assessment of performance of an employee and does not cover only the subject knowledge. Even if your employees skill level and knowledge of subject is good the he/she achieves higher score in those areas but remember they are always meant to be assessed on other parameters as well. There should be some general parameters like planning and organising, communication skills etc. and then there should also be some project or task specific parameters which can be measured by implementing a KRA (Key Result Areas) model. In a KRA model some task specific goals are decided on SMART principal i.e. Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Timely, and these goals are mutually agreed my the employee and the manager with specific deadlines. Then at appraisal cycle these are assessed for completeness and scores are guaranted.

See atatched two images, this should give you a very good structure of 1) General Competencies 2) KRA stucture

Also, you can set parameters for performance measure under two broad categories Quantity and Quality

Basically, i agree that performance management is not based on employee skills only but in this situation where the employee's knowledge is superior than his manager's own. Even if the perfomance is based on some other key result areas, how will the manager provide feedback on the knowledge area knowing fully that the employee knowledge is superior to his own.
