Informal review opportunities


Last Published  01 August 2012

This tool involves a structured reflection exercise for managers focusing on two members of the team. Managers are guided to a decision on how they will improve the way in which they continuously review the performance of these two team members. The overall purpose is to increase the level of awareness of the importance of continuous appraisal. 

Tool aims
  • To encourage continuous appraisal and review of performance 
  • To ensure that there are no 'surprises' at formal performance review meetings 
  • To give team members a frequent opportunity to understand how they are doing against the manager's expectations.
