  • I am an avid fan of Michael Armstrong's Handbook series and have used them successfully with my CIPD classes for several years. This text includes current debates on whether traditional performance management systems add value to an organization and discusses in depth the movement towards 'performance leadership'. Armstrong has included distinct sections on hot topics such as managing the performance of home and international workers that my students at all levels will find useful, particularly for the latest CIPD suite of courses. I will be recommending this text to my students and predict that I will see many references to it in their future assessments.
