    It is too good. It is not a video but a complete book on performance assessment and appraisal. It is the right time of the year to go through this video. I have not blinked even once when the video was playing.
    Too good and thank you for sharing.

  2. Mamta Ashar says:

    These are the verses like the ones in the Bhagwad Gita for better understanding,handling & up keeping the Human Capital.
    Kudos, Sir !!
    Well explained.

    I found this video is a major shift from reading the Other view to listening and seeing the other view. To day the lecture of Mr Ramkumar was so expressed that discard the dehumanization of systems and promote human potentials in terms of creating motivation, . In fact the lecture was the out come of a well cultivated and experienced mind that surpass the knowledge and intellectual parameter to a realization of ones own personal and professional quest.I am happy to listen this and will use this to my IFIG colleagues to listen and learn from this excellent speech.It reminded me of the thought of Eric Fromm.

    I liked the sentence “Human performance is contextual” also the thick difference between the word passion and obsession.I hope we will get more opportunities in future to listen such promotional and professional lecture through which we can refine our mind and action.
    Regards

    What appealed to me most was honesty in accepting that certain level of Subjectivity in assessment is inevitable but our success lies in keeping the gap between Objectivity and Subjectivity as low as possible.
    Issue not touched upon is comparing Performances in entirely different environment which is normal feature in Government organizations like Railways, Defense Forces, PSUs etc. As situation exists today your future promotions are linked on Appraisals but there is no weight age for the circumstances in which Person operates. To give an example of IR with which I am very familiar, an Engineer is an outstanding Researcher but he has to prove his outstanding caliber in Field jobs otherwise his future is doomed. Result is we lose an outstanding technical hand and get a good enough Field man. I do not know how Private Sector handles these situations. I think basic change in Policy of Promotion is required.

    Given a chance, I would run this video to my colleagues before engaging into a Performance discussion – be it Appraisal or Management. Every blog and video in ‘the other view’ shares so much of wisdom. Thank you.

    But, wondering whether there is a scientific way of differentiating the contribution of Financial Capital and Human Capital so as to decide on the share of ‘Amrut’. May be, Yes. I have still not reached that level in an organisation to understand that better.

    Also, ‘Asuras’ don’t remain ‘Asuras’ forever. The speech was complete when sir brought the metaphor in terms of the likes of Manusr Ali Khan Pataudi treating Virat neutrally (neither Deva or Asura) before the innings start.

  9. George G says:

    Great clarity of thought, especially Performance appraisal vs performance management. Also the humility to accept imperfection in assessment thereby bringing value of Human capital beyond an year of appraisal
