Role Description: Goals set for the role will include the task performance as well as the managerial qualities.

~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~
Job Description: Since a Job Description is a unilateral data, the goal setting may also ultimately be a unilateral exercise.

9. Appraisal
~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~
Job Description: Appraisal is quite a simple exercise merely using the data.

Role Description: Appraisal is a bit tedious but quite wholesome (having potential assessment of the employee - a growth orientation) ,
