For as long as we have had the modern organization, employees and managers have said, “We are too busy – we need more help’!  In my 30+ years of working in and advising organizations, that statement is a common thread.

Forces Disrupting Traditional Performance Review Processes

Today’s work reality is challenged by multiple and constant disruptors that are putting pressure on organizations and their foundational structures, processes and people. For the near term, one thing is certain, these disruptors are not going away. They are our new normal. We must account for these disruptors as we look at our human assets and how we manage them and their responses / reactions to these disruptors.
