Great article! I think it is important to distinguish between abandonment and evolvement. What Google is doing (as you rightly pointed out) is evolving their philosophy and not evolving it. The same argument goes for new age performance management processes. When we look at (tactically & operationally) what companies like GE, Deloitte, Accenture is doing - it is evolvement; it only sounds on media like they are abandoning performance management all together, which is factually incorrect.

Thank you for this article. OD is one of the most misconceived pieces of work, I find out. In an interview last year, I tried to explain a bit more, please see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaN-vM9Bdfg&t=1s. The key to remember is that with OD work, there needs to be an efficiency gain - whether that's with people, processes or systems. I fully agree it is not linear; however, there needs to be a bottom line impact.
