The most extraordinary thing about this blast of common sense is that it comes from Accenture, which over the years has delivered some world-class, paradigm-busting drivel.Earlier this year Deloitte started to dismantle its extraordinarily cumbersome appraisal machinery, which takes 2m hours a year to churn out one appraisal for 65,000 people. If you think of that in terms of opportunity cost and assume that even the most junior Deloitte people hire themselves out for £100 an hour, the firm has been wasting at least £200m a year on a system that rewards the wrong people, demotivates almost everyone and spreads boredom and cynicism all around.Should the current management of Deloitte and Accenture say sorry for all those useless annual appraisal systems they have prescribed in the past?Accenture has said appraisals in future will be "all about you", which sounds superficially promising, but I'm not holding my breath.Better still, Deloitte will insist that all its managers check in with the people they manage once a week.
