Professor Dewakar Goel’s work on Performance appraisal is worthy of the highest acclaim. In 20 years as a Management Trainer, I have not seen a better reference that provides such a refreshing alternative perspective to the many Western centric volumes and assists readers to grasp the often elusive cultural aspects of modern day management with the region.
