This presentation contains information on Adapting to Change, Deciding What Needs to be Done; Planning Ahead, Getting Results, Evaluating Progress; Appraisal Interviews and Target-setting Meetings. There are also links to other sources of information as well as diagrams.

Target Student Population:
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
General knowledge of business terminology.<br/>

some outdated concepts
- outdated data
- data is from UK; need to tie to international discussion?
- lacks transition from topic to topic (no explanation on how each topic relates to one another)
- sections appear to be pieced together
- poorly written summary
- no scholarly supported resources
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
This could serve as a very general background to the subject.
- material must be read keeping in mind its date of publication- there does not appear to be easy adaption for use in instruction nor guidance on how to use the material for faculty or students- raw material which would need work to be effectively used
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
This is a very unsophisticated website that just requires paging down through the copy
- full comprehension requires additional effort due to quality of writing
Other Issues and Comments:
The copy needs to be edited for grammar and punctuation. The page needs to be re-designed for ease of use and to make it more attractive.
