Your supervisor has tasked you with creating a new performance appraisal system for your department. Your first step is to determine what criteria and competencies are to be evaluated.

- Summarize your “new” performance appraisal and explain the criteria and competencies you selected. Justify your rational for the areas you’ve selected.
- Why will your new performance appraisal better assess and measure employees’ work performance?
- What is your intended employee and organizational outcomes for your new type of appraisal? How would a fair and equitable performance appraisal increase motivation in your department? Justify and support your rational.
Ensure you have credible resources to support your responses.
