The rise and fall of performance management in India
In 2014, the performance management model seemed to be well established in India’s central government. Today, everything has changed. “India has no formal system for government performance management,” Prajapati Trivedi writes in commentary for Governance, “and all performance reviews are done in the office of the Prime Minister in the old-fashioned way.” Trivedi explains the “spectacular rise . . . and speedy demise” of performance management. The story “offers valuable lessons for future reformers” in other democracies. Trivedi received ASPA’s International Public Administration Award at its March conference. Free access to the commentary.
