Impacts and Recommendations

  • The shift from annual performance reviews toward continual coaching techniques is gaining traction and disrupting downstream processes such as performance calibration
  • The traditional performance calibration process relies on data that may no longer exist and applies principles that may not align with emerging performance management strategies
  • There is a current technology disconnect between modern performance management and the traditional calibration process, meaning application leaders must experiment with ways to bridge gaps and modify this process
