YOU SEEM TO HAVE GIVEN UP ON US..., YOU DON'T SEEM TO CARE FOR THE AUTHORITY

This report deals with MARTA's General Manager and his five-step procedure for appraisal and evaluation of executive performance. Over a year ago, the General Manager developed and implemented this more or less standard procedure which is outlined briefly as follows: (1) Concerns were aired with each major subordinate in approximate weekly sessions; (2) Where concerns persisted or increased, a confidential letter to the executive was prepared by the General Manager detailing the employee's strengths, weaknesses, and special concerns about performance; (4) If problems persisted or worsened, the General Manager drafted a letter to the executive reaffirming the specific problems and setting a target date by which specific improvements were expected; and (5) If improvements did not occur by the target date, termination would follow.
