Why Is Performance Management So Taboo In Agile?

Performance evaluations and performance management are areas I disagree with many Agile coaches’ opinions on. “Popular opinion” is that you don’t evaluate individual team members at all. You only evaluate the team as a whole. They maintain that team members are self-motivated and will do their best to support their team. They also feel that evaluating individuals on the team could lead to stratification, and all team members should be treated equal and be at the same level. What I propose is to evaluate individuals, but to emphasize team support and commitment in the evaluation.
