A "contingency approach" to organizational management requires translation of empirical generalizations into situational guidelines for performing practical administrative functions. Such a translation is offered for the task of evaluating individual performance. A contingency model is described in which the situational appropriateness of behavior-based, objective-based, and judgment-based evaluation is related to characteristics of tasks and workers.
