Dear Tahir
Performance Appraisal is a tool to assess the employee performance on his job behaviour with standard work expectation according to job and role analysis. Performance Management is managing the overall performance of an employee for present as well as future requirement.
Every worker working has past experience and knowledge level , present skill level thus acquiring knowledge for the future job and thus changing and shaping right attitude for future job goals.
Performance management is helping the individual to sharpen present skill and knowledge level, and helping them to acquire future potential through human development.
The subsystem of PMS are: Job Descriptions, role clarity, Performance appraisal, Training and development, reward scheme, feedback system, Mentoring, Potential appraisal, etc.
the approaches of PMS are role based, team based, competency based, reward based, etc.

Dear SR Khandagale,

Performance Management System (PMS) is far wider. It is major Organisation Development (OD) intervention. It concentrates on the measurement of the business performance. PMS is base for organisation's recruitment policies, training interventions, employee promotion, employees' annual increment etc.

Performance Appraisal (PA) is subset of PMS. It concentrates on measurement of individual performance. PA score helps the organisation to bring focus to their employee development activities.

I have been giving my replies on PMS and PA continuously on this forum. You may click the following link to read my past reply:
