What is an Appraisal?

Appraisals are baselining and measuring events used to capture the current state of an organzation's processes so that the organization can then plan their future improvement activities or measure the progress they have made toward achieving their goals.

Appraisal results tend to look something like the following chart but supported by a lot more information to help the organization understand why certain practices were scored as red or yellow. Different methodologies have slightly differing approaches to scoring and rating.
