After reading countless articles about the need for programming skills in various industries, I decided my 2019 new years resolution is to learn Python. Other than Excel formulas, I have no programming experience (I'm certain REAL programmers will shake their heads if they ever read this).

Hopefully with time, patience, and a sturdy wall to sustain head banging, I can convince our HR department to at least give narrative-derived performance assessments a try.

Check out this publication on a new intersection for HR and IT:

Speer, A. (2018) Quantifying with words: An investigation of the validity of narrative-derived performance scores. PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY, 1 - 35.

Hi William. Thanks for the article. I will chase it down. In the meantime, I'll pass along my husband's encouragement -- he thinks Python is fun!
