Am I hot or not peer reviews

Over the break I was talking to Ajit and Pradip about how ineffective 360 reviews are.  With any large organization who centralize employee performance rating, it is hard to do a truely fair job.  How much did Kavin contributed to the 11 billion dollar profit last year.  How much of it should be credited to past employee who built the infrastructure.  How much work did I put it to enable future success?  When my rating travels up the chain, how much of my work is actually visible to other managers?

So I thought, why not have a peer driven system as a part of your rating?  Much like open source developers get his reputation, we all know some developers in another group that’s really good, and some that sucks.  Why don’t we randomly show each developers a list of logins, and ask them to rate from 1 to 10 (with an option for N/A).  At the end you can draw all sort of statistic from it, like if one group ranks above others.  Using this system you will actually encourage developer to work with another group for the greater good of the firm.
