Performance Review Guidelines for Self-Appraisal

Self-Appraisals offer numerous benefits to the appraisal process including greater perceived accuracy, fairness and improved understanding of the demands and expectations of the organization. We recommend that the SelfAppraisal be completed and submitted to your manager approximately 2 weeks prior to your Performance Appraisal discussion.

The Performance Review Form provides periodic written review of individual performance, in the context of the ongoing performance management process. It is designed to facilitate constructive discussion between the employee and manager in order to clarify performance objectives, provide feedback about the employees performance with respect to skills and behaviors, provide a framework for identifying the employees development plans, and serve as a basis for merit increase decisions. Managers and employees are responsible for completing a yearly performance review as part of ongoing performance discussions. Preparation for the performance review discussion should begin with the employee completing a self-appraisal.

The Human Resources Department is available to answer questions and to provide assistance to managers and staff members on any aspect of the performance management process, including the performance review form.

I Major Areas of Responsibility (This is what you do)

This section of the Performance Review form is used to record the three or four major activities or goals that you are responsible for in your job as well as the evaluation criteria for these. The major activities typically reflect duties described in the job description and/or performance goals. Evaluation criteria encompass such standards as impact, timeliness, cost effectiveness, client satisfaction, accuracy, consistency, etc. During the review period, the manager and staff member are encouraged to review progress in meeting identified goals or activities, and the manager may decide to revise, add, or delete any of these in order to best meet changing organizational needs.

II Performance CompetenciesSkills and Behaviors (This is how you do it)

At the beginning of the review period, the manager and employee are responsible for reaching a shared understanding of the key skills and behaviors as they relate to the individuals job description and have been established by the manager. While the employee will be evaluating him or herself regarding the key skills and behaviors, the manager is ultimately responsible for assessing the staff members performance against the agreed upon performance expectations and reviewing the assessment with the individual. Performance that does not meet expectations should be addressed in the Development Plan section of the Performance Review.

III Overall Assessment

The manager completes a brief summary of the employees overall performance. (Employee does not complete this section.)

IV Development Plan
There are four kinds of Development Plans:

1) Development to close performance gaps: the manager, in conjunction with the staff member, should identify development plans for any goals, skills or behaviors which are assessed at the Needs Improvement performance level.

Development plans which address performance at the Needs Improvement performance level should be reviewed and discussed through ongoing performance discussions.

2) Development to enhance job skills and performance: plans identified by a manager with the individual to provide opportunities for a staff member to enhance job-related skills and performance.

3) Development for career advancement: plans identified by the manager and individual to enhance the promotability of a staff member.

4) Development for career exploration: staff members may initiate a development plan to provide opportunities for career exploration through cross-training or mentoring activities.

V Performance Goals and Expectations

This section is used to begin the performance management process for the next review period. Goals typically reflect major job activities and may be modified throughout the year based upon changing organizational needs.

Notes/Comments on Competency Areas and Suggestions for Improvement I have known a long time ago that taking responsibility is a great leadership quality, I dont allow my subordinate to take direct responsibility from the top management in case of failure in achieving the total project deliverables, I take the chunk of the blame because I make the most decision, though I further punish my subordinate for failures on their part.

I make sure our customers are satisfied with our service, though I use to make sure this feat is met by all means before the management enlightened me then when I was brought in to the Head office for citation and there the companys aim and objective was properly highlighted to me.

On the contrary to the believe of the management that PM cannot handle installation is not true, before I became a project manager in my former place of work, I worked as a core implementation Engineer for two years before I took over as a BSS Engineer where I supervise field installation and I carry out installations myself. The only area I dont work on is the MW orientation alignment which I told the GM before my employment was offered to me. The EMTS project we just started I took part in the installation of the trial site we worked on and the sites we installed completely without snags. No QC was carried out also. I work with both the installers by giving the remote support and if sites are close to the office I occasionally visit sites which are giving installers technical issue. Collaboration with Logistic department I give support to the logistic department in terms of motivating drivers and helping in site location and addresses in terms of community issue I render assistance, even financial support even up till now the Logistic manager still owe me for over a month for my assistance in helping that materials are delivered in good time I wake up mid night to send money through the internet to drivers on transit. As much as possible I try not to enforce anything on my subordinate I make sure they see the companys goal and I make sure they know that whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well at the first time. I dont shout on my installers and I dont exercise authority over them.

Section IIIGrowth and Development Plan

Employee: Describe two or three of your top strengths and one or two growth/development opportunities. Provide this to your manager for discussion and review. Damage control- I dont panic under pressure, I established that character in Asaba Region when Mr Chris and Mr Parthiban was making life miserable for our previous PMs at the region then Strengths: Interpersonal relation- this is a God gift and I use it well by making sure I get the right thing from the right people.

Sincerity and Dedication towards my job, sincerity is a virtue I dont joke with and I will do everything good to keep that feat.

I am a very reserve person many, and I use my nature to study others by talking less and listening more. What will you (employee) do? (This can be as simple as
reading a book, serving on a team, observing someone who does it well, asking for feedback on a behavior that youre trying to change, etc.)

I read a lot, and I do a lot of research I sleep late and wake up early I have over 500 ebooks on my laptop and I make sure I read at least 50-100 pages of books a day. I am currently doing PGD in Theology, this is a year program. I am reading my book on PMP Title Preparing for the PROJECT MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONAL Certification Exam Third Edition Authored by Michael W Newell. I also have several books on PMP both hard and soft copy which I am studying on my own till I finish my PGD before I can enroll for my PMP Certification Exams I will appeal to the management to sponsor me for courses that will further broaden my scope in project management so that I can be more valuable to the company.

What can the manager do to support this?
