Abstract

The introduction of performance appraisal (PA) in Australian universities in the 1990s was an attempt to make academics more accountable and, in so doing, improve efficiency in the higher education sector. Since PA was introduced in academia there has been a paucity of research into its efficacy. What began as a simple process has now evolved to become part of a wider approach to managing human resources, namely performance management. The aim of this research is to determine how universities implement their performance management (PM) systems from a strategic and operational perspective.
