Nicola Brazil is Head of Development at PricewaterhouseCoopers and believes that the performance, feedback and development processes are all intertwined.
"Performance reviews and goal setting should be part of a year-round co-creation process, rather than just an activity carried out at a single point in time," she says. "It's definitely a living process throughout the year between the manager or coach and the individual.
"The single biggest issue that managers need to remember for successful appraisals is that there should never be any surprises. Things go wrong during an appraisal when issues are raised that totally blindside an unsuspecting employee."
Brazil says that the appraisal session should always be a two-way process.

Cut costs, not heads: 5 strategies to prepare for the upturn, 25 June 2009 [cached]
"It was an amazing response," says HR director of PWC, Nicole Brazil. "It really said a lot to us about the fabric of our organisation and that people know we are all in this together."
Exactly how much money the strategy saved the com pany - and in turn how many jobs it saved - is difficult to quantify, says Brazil. However, with more than 4000 employees taking an extra 10 to 15 days unpaid leave it's easy to say it would have a huge impact on overall savings.
Year on year, more people have elected to take up flex ible work options within PWC, but because economic con ditions forced the company to offer employees this extra annual leave it had more benefits than just saving money. According to Brazil, it gave some people the opportunity to do things they otherwise would not have done.
"This seven months program has given people the chance to stop and think about flexible work options," she says.
Brazil also believes that this measure will be far more beneficial to the company than letting people go in preparation for when the economic pressure eases.
