We are a 150 strong software product organization. Recently, a new Performance Management System has been introduced across the organization. Normalization of appraisal ratings have been mapped according to the bell-curve model.

Can a bell-curve be implemented for an organization of this size successfully? Ideally what should be the sample size of an orgnaization (similar to the specifics mentioned above) to implement the bell-curve strategy?

Your inputs are really valuable to me.

Thank you and regards.

Normalization of Performance Management System Scores using bell curve works well when;
1. The organisation has historical data of the managers' ratings and
2. The organisation structure in place
Given these 2 parameters normalization of the scores is effective.
