Have you had blood pressure and heart beat increase with the proximity of the annual performance review rituals? Do you get the chills just before your “performance improvement plan” meeting with your boss? Have you had a poor review because you were not able to perform how you boss wanted, but in reality you could not have done anything different?

Performance Reviews are based in completely wrong assumptions. Companies still think that Performance Reviews are great tools to provide feedback, to set goals and to improve the individuals. All this is pure nonsense and in reality Performance Reviews are a cancer for our companies and they need to be removed.

My name is Luis Gonçalves and I am an Agile Coach, Co-Author, International Speaker and a Blogger.

I have been working in the software industry since 2003, being an Agile practitioner since 2007. I have a lot of experience in integrating sequential projects phases like localization into an Agile Framework and pioneering Agile adoption at different companies and different contexts.

I am a co-author of a book called: “Getting Value Out of Agile Retrospectives”.

I have a technical background yet my passion lies at the Management side where I am a Management 3.0 passionate.

I am a co-founder of a MeetUp group in Munich, Germany called High Performing Teams. Me and my colleagues created this group with the vision of “Define the future of Management and Leadership” . We are aiming to collaboratively generate several ideas/theories and try them out in our professional life.

I like to write and share ideas with the world and this made me a passionate blogger. I get inspiration from my professional life and from all books that I read every week. You can follow my blog on: http://lmsgoncalves.com/
