In performance appraisal, we measure many generic qualities and attributes of an individual performer, while we account for the achievement of targets. While the achievement of targets is measurable and traceable, attributes, traits, and other general qualities are difficult to assess, unless its exact understanding is spelt out to the assessors. It is for this reason that we need to understand the meaning of personal qualities and the demonstrated performance qualities. In line with Monga (1983), we can draw such a list of personal qualities and demonstrate them as in Table 3.3.
