The purpose of this paper is to examine the strategic impacts of performance appraisal on the corporate governance dynamics (in the private sector) in addition to the advanced assumptions which traditionally explain the declining tendency related to the board of governance's evaluation.


A quantitative analysis by regression approach was mobilized for the needs of this technical and conceptual paper. In order to proceed, the author use a model of workforce determination which examines the influence of appointments, the termination of functions, the solid mechanisms of evaluation and strategies of control.


The results' degree proved itself to be slightly higher and consequently, the influence of management evaluation was significant. As expected, the planning mainly reflected, in a unique way, a large and growing proportion of new appointments.


The objective of the paper is to validate the impacts of business management evaluation on the dynamics of the governance workforce in the private sector. This has never been done in any empirical study before. The approach allows to present an original conception of the influence model of evaluation and the planning evaluation relationship factors.
