Abstract

A large, mature and robust literature now provides a useful framework for designing and implementing pay for performance. Several excellent surveys of this research are available. The purpose of this chapter is not to provide yet another survey, but to use the lessons of the economic literature on incentives to discuss how to design and implement pay for performance in practice.

Keywords: Incentives, Pay for Performance, Performance Measurement, Subjective Evaluation
