Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The focus of this study is on employee performance evaluation in the international context, while the main part is dedicated to the two most important features in expatriate performance management - goal setting and performance evaluation. The thesis consists of eight chapters. Chapter 1 explains the main causes for the existence of internationally employed managers and states the purpose of this thesis. Chapter 2 focuses on the definition of expatriates and on the utilization of international managers. Chapter 3 links the expatriation issue to international human resource management and investigates its role during the expatriation cycle and in the process of expatriate performance evaluation. Chapter 4 presents the most important stages of the expatriation cycle and their influence on expatriate performance. Chapter 5 concentrates on the salient differences of performance management and performance appraisal. Chapter 6 aims to provide definitions for success and failure, and deals with expatriate failure rates. Chapter 7 is the center of this thesis and comprehensively explains the heart of every performance management process - goal setting and performance evaluation. The last chapter summarizes the findings of the master thesis, and is concerned with the limitations of these findings and their role in future research. The aim of this theoretical study is to provide a comprehensive understanding of expatriate performance appraisal, based on existing literature, to show its limitations, and to provide a solid basis for further research.
