Forced ranking systems are an insult to competent managers. if you're any good as a manager, you don't wait for a performance appraisal to either get rid of your worst performers or do something to improve their performance. In fact the system encourages you to hang on to the dead losses so you have someone to fire at appraisal time without losing any of your capable staff.


Yes indeed.

But then I see life as a manager as being a constant battle against the madness of HR, of which this is just one manifestation.
