A literature review of 360 degree feedback as a tool of leadership development

The study invoked two measurement points within six months. It found that managers lack insight into the impact of their behaviour (which in itself suggests the usefulness of gaining feedback) but that the upward feedback program had small overall positive effect. The study found that managers’ self- rating on key interpersonal behaviours decreased over the two successive measurement points. Snyder et al. (2007) studied the higher education management environment; similarly argue the importance of supportive institutional strategies to ensure appropriate integration of a 360-degree feedback mechanism. It is suggested; the 360-degree feedback interview should focus on relationship-building to create shared meaning and mutual understanding (Lewis and Slade, 2000) and should inspire self- motivation to learn (London, 2002). In a study published in 2004, a team of researchers were interested to discover the emphasis that raters placed on supportive and developmental forms of leadership.

(How) Does 360 Degree Feedback Benefit the Field of Entrepreneurship?

(How) Does 360 Degree Feedback Benefit the Field of Entrepreneurship?

Empirical Evidence of 360 Degree Feedback’s Utility in Entrepreneurship Research The preliminary research that has been done supports the utility of 360 degree feedback in entrepreneurship research. For example, Miao and colleagues (e.g., Miao, 2015; Miao & Coombs, 2015) examined how psychological traits predict individuals’ intentions to create businesses and to take over businesses. They assessed four psychological traits, which are risk propensity, emotional intelligence, proactive personality, and rebelliousness. Three individuals who were familiar with each focal subject were invited to provide observer ratings of these four psychological traits. They performed both regression analyses and relative weight analyses. Their study made two noteworthy contributions that substantiated the importance of 360 degree feedback in entrepreneurship research.

360-DEGREE FEEDBACK: CROSSING THE BRIDGE FROM EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE TO DEVELOPMENT

360-DEGREE FEEDBACK: CROSSING THE BRIDGE FROM EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE TO DEVELOPMENT

2 International Journal in Management and Social Science http://ijmr.net.in, Email: irjmss@gmail.com In the above work context, 360-degree feedback has been one of the most popular method, in last ten years, employed in organizations to measure the individual’s contribution and effectiveness in achieving, not only his / her individuals allocated goals, but, also, the group goals as a whole (CIPD, 2003; Kearns, 2004). Typically, the members of the group would rate one another on certain parameters, which are used as common parameters across the group to capture the performance of individuals. The parameters contain both behavioral and non- behavioral elements which are used as the common parameters of performance measurement. Along with peer rating in the group, normally in 360-degree feedback, self-appraisal by each group member also forms part of the assessment.

Effective integration of 360 degree feedback into the coaching process

Effective integration of 360 degree feedback into the coaching process

One issue that is generally problematic both in 360 degree feedback but also in appraisal is the question of who is actually best placed to rate other people’s performance. For instance, line or senior managers may have little idea of what an individual actually does on a day-to-day basis. Thus, one study found that behaviour change as measured by comparison of 360 degree ratings over time was more closely related to initial self-assessments than initial ratings from other sources (Bailey & Austin, 2006). This finding points to the fact that we should give as much attention to self evaluations, as to ratings from other sources, and that we should look at underlying trait measures to explore the reasons for performance issues.

Developing a framework for assessing effective development activities

Developing a framework for assessing effective development activities

The primary purpose and (often less explicit) secondary purposes are clearly linked to the source of feedback. As noted elsewhere (e.g. Fletcher, 2001) the developmental and assessment functions of appraisal, as an example, do not always sit comfortably with each other. Unbiased assessment requires an objective and somewhat impersonal approach, commonly leading to an imposed or, at best, negotiated outcome. By contrast, the developmental aspect of this activity requires sensitive interpersonal skills, leading to a mutual and collaborative outcome. It has been demonstrated that more credible feedback sources, usually a more senior manager, carry more weight than other ratings in the context of 360 degree feedback (see our discussion of 360 degree feedback below). Less attention has been given to this in relation to other activities. Mabey (2003) noted that a myth of expertise may surround the role of the coach. It needs to be investigated closer how the role of the coach, and their

A Neuro-fuzzy approach for user behaviour classification and prediction

A Neuro-fuzzy approach for user behaviour classification and prediction

Big data and cloud computing technology appeared on the scene as new trends due to the rapid growth of social media usage over the last decade. Big data represent the immense volume of complex data that show more details about behaviours, activities, and events that occur around the world. As a result, big data analytics needs to access diverse types of resources within a decreased response time to produce accurate and stable business experimentation that could help make brilliant decisions for organizations in real-time. These developments have spurred a revolutionary transformation in research, inventions, and business marketing. User behaviour analysis for classification and prediction is one of the hottest topics in data science. This type of analysis is performed for several purposes, such as finding users ’ interests about a product (for marketing, e-commerce, etc.) or toward an event (elections, championships, etc.) and observing suspicious activities (security and privacy) based on their traits over the Internet. In this paper, a neuro-fuzzy approach for the classification and prediction of user behaviour is proposed. A dataset, composed of users ’ temporal logs containing three types of information, namely, local machine, network and web usage logs, is targeted. To complement the analysis, each user ’ s 360-degree feedback is also utilized. Various rules have been implemented to address the company ’ s policy for determining the precise behaviour of a user, which could be helpful in managerial decisions. For prediction, a Gaussian Radial Basis Function Neural Network (GRBF-NN) is trained based on the example set generated by a Fuzzy Rule Based System (FRBS) and the 360-degree feedback of the user. The results are obtained and compared with other state-of-the-art schemes in the literature, and the scheme is found to be promising in terms of classification as well as prediction accuracy.

A 360-degree Managers Performance Appraisal System in an Iranian Industrial Company

A 360-degree Managers Performance Appraisal System in an Iranian Industrial Company

Performance appraisal, based on 360-degree feedback, is resulted from multi-source multirater (MSMR) approach; it has been used for assessing job performance of managers (Fletcher & Perry, 2001). The 360-degree appraisal system provides multiple perspectives on a person's job performance from peers, subordinates, managers, and self. This kind of appraisal system has been introduced since early 1990's and is becoming popular, particularly in the developed organizations.

Performance Appraisal System of Employees at Private Metals and Alloys Pvt Ltd in Vellore

BERNADIN, J.H defines that “360degree feedback is valuable in that it provides additional sources of observations of behaviour from varying perspectives. “subordinates for example, are more directly affected by managerial behaviours and decisions in ways that are not always evident to supervisors. In fact, supervisory feedback may primarily reflect the performance of the manager’s work unit, rather than leadership behaviours, which they may not observe (what vs. how) research by Bernadin and Betty has shown that 360 degree feedback can enhance both communications and performance”. CARDY and DOBBINS 1994 defined that “performance appraisal represents, in part, a formalized process of worker monitoring and is intended to be a management tool to improve the performance and productivity of worker. The present study shows that while performance appraisal is popular, its use shows definite patterns and, as a consequence, it is unlikely to be used for all non-managerial workers”.

Perceived Credibility, Evaluation of Outcome and Attitude towards Behavioural Change in 360-Degree Assessment

Perceived Credibility, Evaluation of Outcome and Attitude towards Behavioural Change in 360-Degree Assessment

Ajzen and Fishbein (1980) pointed out that there are external factors which are not included in the Theory of Reasoned Action but may influence the beliefs a person holds or the relative importance they attach to attitudinal and normative considerations. They mentioned three types of external variables namely Demographic Variables, Attitudes toward targets, and Personality Traits and called for further research on those external variables. By introducing another variable, behavior control, into the model, Ajzen (1991) formulated the Theory of Planned Behavior, which suggests attitude, subjective norm and behavioral control are the three determinants of intention toward a certain behavior. McCarthy and Garavan (2006) applied Ajzen and Fishbein’s work to explain behavior changes following a 360-degree feedback and found that organizational support and attitude towards behavioral change were significant predictors for behavior change following a 360-degree feedback while locus of control was not. McCarthy and Garavan considered that attitude in 360-degree assessment practice consist of two factors: feedback accuracy and cynicism. These two attitudinal factors significantly affect the raters’ behavior changes after the 360- degree assessment practices: cynicism (β = -0.17, p < .001) and feedback accuracy (β = 0.09, p< .05).

360 Degree performance evaluation method for evaluating the performance of employees

360 Degree performance evaluation method for evaluating the performance of employees

Feedback systems as well as on the possibilities of bringing that should be remembered in a lot may be considered negative. At this stage, the success conditions of the 360- degree feedback system are gaining importance. The way of a good performance evaluation is to pass from right quality and required question (Wells, 1999: 88). Such acceptance by all employees of the administrative change is usually a slow- growing phase. Many employees in the process of reduction of charges to adapt to change are drawn to dismissal concern. This prejudice is not the first employee wages to avoid involved a decline explain the performance system of content and how that should also be explained in a clear and detailed way the whole business seen as what purpose. If that does not happen, the reaction can occur, and conditions will not be asked to compensate for the power process will be habitable (Bayram 2006: 63). 360-degree performance evaluation system through the assessment process can provide feedback to both the employee and the manager. Administrators can perceive themselves how that seen from the outside (Waldman and Bowen, 1998: 126). They show a higher level of efficiency than those receiving the feedback field running through these methods and is observed to be more to the intended point (Çalık, 2003: 132-133).

360 degree perspective on allergic rhinitis management in Italy: a survey of GPs, pharmacists and patients

360 degree perspective on allergic rhinitis management in Italy: a survey of GPs, pharmacists and patients

The burden of AR in Italy has been assessed in the past, but these surveys have focused on a particular patient population (e.g. children) [19] or else the data from Italy has been combined with that of other European countries [9] and the United States [20]. However, in order to assess the true burden of AR in Italy and describe the current AR landscape, a ‘360-degree’ perspective should be employed. Such a perspective includes the viewpoint of the general practitioner (GP) who diagnoses AR and prescribes medi- cation, that of the pharmacist who dispenses medication and advises on AR treatments and referrals, and that of the patient who lives with the symptomatic burden and the consequences of medication and referral choices.

360-degree rhetorical analysis of job hunting: A four-part, multimodal project

This article proposes the use of a four-component multimodal employment project that offers students a 360-degree understanding of the rhetorical situations surrounding job searches. More specifically, we argue for the use of the four deliverables of written resumes and cover letters, mock oral onsite interview, video resume analysis, and peer critique of social media profiles in a widely taught employment project to help students better analyze the complicated rhetorical situations surrounding job applications and to facilitate better peer collaboration and serious revision of the two high-stakes documents of cover letters and resumes.

Feasibility study on a robot-assisted procedure for tumor localization using needle-rotation force signals

Feasibility study on a robot-assisted procedure for tumor localization using needle-rotation force signals

A parametric sensitivity test was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the localization procedure to the distance between the tumor centre and the needle insertion position (TC-IP). In this parametric test, five different distances were considered, which are 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 mm. For each TC-IP distance, ten tests were performed to evaluate the effective range of tumor localization by this force-guided robotic procedure. The ratio of the maximum value to the average value of the needle force in a 360-degree rotation was used to indicate the sensitivity of the tumor localization.

Feasibility, acceptability and adaption of dignity therapy: a mixed methods study achieving 360° feedback

Patient views on the DTQP and the DT intervention Out of 30 patients, 29 subsequently took part in cogni- tive interviews to share their views on the DTQP (mean duration: 10 min; SD: 6; range: 2–30). We identified four main categories of feedback: on the title; the DTQP; the wording of individual questions; and the set of questions actually asked during the DT interview (Table 4). In addition, patients gave the following positive remarks and ideas regarding DT: the questions could lead to more openness in talking about cancer; DT preserves pride; DT should be widely offered; DT should be con- ducted in the presence of relatives; DT is only successful if it is a helpful encounter.
