Company Rating (25%):

These objectives will be worked out with the Executive Committee and will be appropriate to the Team.

Development Team Rating of Individual's Performance (25%):

Each person dependent on the work of the reviewee is asked for a subjective judgement of performance on the 1-10 scale documented in the Review Process document. Many alternatives to this have been tried, but none seem to work as well as asked for a quick, gut-level response. If the review process is working well the average rating by team members will be remarkably close to the reviewers rating on individual performance.

Individual Performance (50%):

The following questions vary slightly from company to company. They force the review process away from a laundry list of items accomplished. These items are used to justify responses to the questions. The questions are designed to focus the performance review on the issues that are critical to company success and often critical to company survival. They lead the discussion away from what the Reviewer thinks about the person, and focusses the discussion on what market impact this person has.
