Traditional approaches to performance management are rapidly losing their relevance in the modern-day business landscape. Clever corporations are shifting towards continuous feedback and leveraging tools like the Predictive Index®, as delivered by Founding Partner Predictive Success and psychometric assessments to improve the performance review process. This blog explores the progression of performance management and how these tools help organizations drive growth and development.

Flaws of Annual Reviews

Annual performance reviews have many flaws. Often, they are perceived as time-consuming, subjective, and ineffective in providing timely feedback. There is a delay between the actual performance and the review. Often, the review happens much too late to address the at-hand issues and struggles to provide meaningful timely guidance for improvement. Furthermore, the focus on backward-looking evaluation limits the potential for real-time course correction and agile goal setting.

The Rise of Continuous Feedback

Organizations have recognized the need to embrace an employee-centric approach with continuous feedback as an integral part of performance management. Continuous feedback emphasizes regular, ongoing conversations between managers and their subordinates. Through open communication, coaching, development, and providing current feedback, employees can promptly make timely adjustments and address areas that need improvement.

To help provide continuous feedback, organizations are adopting tools like the Predictive Index® that offer scientifically validated assessments to provide insights into individuals’ motivations, behavioural drives, strengths, and working styles.
