London — May 1
Quantify, an organizational research company, has launched an approach to identifying and analyzing 360-degree feedback.
Unlike a generic 360-degree feedback system, Quantify’s approach provides feedback relating a particular manager’s behaviors directly to her/his employer’s own competencies framework.
This provides guidance toward development activities, which will help participants to meet any of those competencies that lack.
Based on clients’ own competencies framework, Quantify’s feedback questionnaire can be administered either online or as a paper questionnaire.
Initial indications, however, are that most people prefer to complete this questionnaire on the Web.
The system allows participants’ manager, their peers, those reporting directly to them and clients to give anonymous feedback about the participants’ behavior.
This generates easy-to-read graphical reports, which relate the participating managers’ self-assessment to the feedback from others.
It also presents the results according to the client’s competencies definitions.
“Given the client’s competencies framework, we can create a highly relevant questionnaire and deploy it on the Web in a matter of days, ” Quantify principal consultant David Lusty said. “Then, all we need is a list of participating managers with their e-mail addresses. We e-mail them, inviting them to visit our Web site to name the people whose feedback they would like to secure, then we e-mail the people they name. Everyone gets a unique respondent key in a link in an e-mail. We send reminders to everyone, progress reports to the participants and, finally, a report, which is easy to read and simple to understand.
