One of the senior team members, who is the best performer in your project plays ‘favorites’ and a few of the team members who work closely with him, have got very good appraisal reports in the past, even though they may not have deserved it. As the project manager, what would you need to proactively do?
A. Ask all the members of your team who are appraisers of other team-members, to be liberal in their appraisals. This will help compensate for the appraisals done by the senior team member.
B. Speak to the senior team member and ask for appraisals to be done fairly, in accordance with the appraisal guidelines.
C. Ignore the matter since you would otherwise lose a senior team member who is key to your project.
D. Ensure that the senior team member does not get to appraise anybody.
