Ownership and the Elements of Self-Management Total quality programmes are founded on the principal that people want to own the problems, the process, the solution and ultimately the success associated with the quality improvement.

What is Business Process Reegineering? Business Process Reengineering is an approach that managers employ to organize and control the processes within their business (Harmon, 2007, p.xxxvii). Hammer and Champy famously described this as “the fundamental rethinking and radical redesign of business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in critical, contemporary measures of performance, such as cost, quality, service and speed” (1995, p.35). Organizations that undertake BPR efforts seek audacious goals such as the dramatic reduction of costs in non-core processes, reaching best-in-class levels of performance within core processes, and the establishment of entirely new levels of best-in-class performance within their industry (Mohanty & Deshmukh, 2000, p.97). For these reasons, advocates of BPR believe it to be the main way in which organizations become more efficient and modernize (Carter, 2005, ¶1).

Introduction As (Drucker,1994; Barney, 1995) stated, the achievements of staff members can conclude the success and survival of a business, and as (Orpen, 1997; Martin and Bartol, 1998; Cook and Crossman, 2004) also concluded that appraisal is a method in which those achievements can be coordinated with the targets of an enterprise, where employees could be motivated and their performance managed and improved. Among all the human resource (HR) practices, performance appraisal is the most important of all (Boswell and Boudreau, 2002; Judge and ferris, 1993; Yehuda Baruch, 1996) and is one of the most discussed and researched topics in the sphere of psychology for over 70 years (Fletcher, 2002; Landy and Farr, 1980). Although many companies still express exasperation with their appraisal schemes (Fletcher, 1997). As Fletcher (2001) indicated, this lack of satisfaction may lead to deficiency of success of performance appraisal as a tool for progressing and inspiring people. Among performance appraisal researchers and practitioners, there is an agreement that assessment of appraisal reactions is important (Keeping and Levy, 2000).
