wel hello,
the basic difference between performane appraisal(PA) and performance management(PM) is that PA is just a mechanism of controlling employee performance through--salary administration, reward administration, promotion and taking disciplinary action. it focuses on the method of appraisal whereas,
PM is about managing the performance of the employees by setting KRAs( key result areas) and KPAs ( key performance areas) so that eople know that what targets they are expected to acheive and what activities will be required to accomplish your goals.

Performance Management is a new name being given to Performance Appraisal system. Here the thrust is on management of performance by planning, reviewing and developing it and not just judging the performance. The performance target are set by superior subordinate partcipation and a qurterly review is being made to correct the deviations identified and accordingly take developmental actions. In previous performance app system, the performance was merely judged at the end of the year and the manager assumed the role more of a judge than a mentor or a coach. This was not appreciated by the employees and hence it was creating a growing resentment against the system. In PM the motive is to manage the performance throughout the year and not just judging it at the end of the year. The main aim is development of performance to make it reach to the level of excellence.

I hope I have thrown some light on the diff bet the two. If I am not able to solve your query, feel free to contact me at .

Difference between performance management and performance appraisal:

performance management:
is an ongoing process rite from planning, monitoring, reviewing and refining.. which includes goal setting, continuous monitor and alteration of goals if required, performance appraisal, and areas of improvement.. - as a continuous cycle.

Performance appraisal:
it is very much a part of the performance management.. that aids in reviewing of the performance( annual/ quarterly) done by both superior and one self..
