In critically looking at past and present performance appraisal systems, a little perspective on the background of performance appraisals is to be able. Performance management is not new. Experts found a mention of performance management, an "Imperial Rater, " in the Wei Dynasty in China which flourished during the third century A. D. Although performance management theory and practice in the United kingdom started out with the Industrial Trend in the overdue 18th century, the common use of performance appraisal techniques with blue-collar employees didn't start until after World Warfare I. Appraisal systems for calculating managerial and professional employee performance weren't used extensively until about 1955. (Murphy and Cleveland, 1995) The first performance appraisal programs during the Industrial Trend were relatively crude and simple.
