Feedback; evaluations; and performance management

Case Clinics

Case Clinics

Time frame:
Ongoing usage

Complexity: 4/5

Background & Purpose

A case clinic is a relaxed, semi-structured discussion where a peer group provides ideas and feedback to a question presented by one of the group. It’s a tool to use, as an individual, if you have a specific issue to bring for discussion relating to a current project. The host pitches a concrete question and the expectation is that a small group can provide feedback, perspective and answers within one relatively short session. These results may not be come out of a larger, more structured meeting.

Pizza Evaluation Method

Pizza Evaluation Method

Time frame:

Punctual usage
Complexity: 1/5
More info: http://

Background & Purpose

This is a quick way of evaluating a workshop. Decide the criteria (ideally 8) that you would like to evaluate, e.g. quality of the output, trainers, atmosphere, accommodation and food. Then you draw a big circle on a flipchart and divide it into eight “Pizza Slices”and write the criteria on or around the slices. Then invite the participants to take a colored marker and put a dot on each pizza slice that represents their level of satisfaction. Close to the center is very satisfied, close to the edge is very dissatisfied.

Future-Flower

Future-Flower

Time frame:

Punctual usage
Complexity: 2/5
More info: http://

Background & Purpose

While evaluating a workshop, it is great when all voices can be heard. It is also great when some conclusions or a certain essence can be distilled. This method helps to achieve those goals. People form groups along the petals of big flowers on flip chart sheets. In the first stage, people write in silence what their main takeaway points are. In the second stage, the groups around the flower share their take away points and write down the shared essence or drawing in the middle of the flower.

Who does what by when?

Who does what by when?

Time frame:
Ongoing usage

Complexity: 1/5

Background & Purpose

This might seem obvious, but sometimes at the end of meetings we reach agreements but we don’t define the action points to develop from them, expecting everyone will take some responsibility to make the decisions happen. Spending time during the meetings to define and prioritize next steps, the people responsible and by when these could happen will help keep your meetings and project progressing.

Reframing

Reframing

Time frame:

Punctual usage
Complexity: 3/5

Background & Purpose

Remember who said this? “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” You are right, Albert Einstein.
Many times when we see things in one way (our natural understanding of a problem or situation) it is hard to see it in another way, and it requires from us a many times difficult but necessary paradigm shift.

If you browse online you will find many resources and tools to help you and your team shift the lens on a situation.

Check Out

Check Out

Time frame:
Ongoing usage

Complexity: 1/5
More info: http://www.artofhosting.org/what-is-aoh/methods/

Background & Purpose

A check out is a good way to end a meeting. It is an open but structured space provided to each participant to express themselves one last time. A check out usually takes place in a circle. It can be guided by a question, like “what is clear to me now and what still needs to be clarified?”. If time is running out, or in big groups, you can also do a “one word check-out” or a check-out with 3 shared claps. There are plenty of possibilities. It can also be non-related to the meeting, like “what are you looking forward to in the next few days”.

Evaluation

Evaluation

Time frame:
Ongoing usage

Complexity: 3/5
More info: http://symbiose.li

Background & Purpose

Evaluation is key to success especially when your organisation has a prototyping approach. We evaluate project, team performance and individual performance on a regular basis. We use an easy format: each person involved considers three things that went well/are going well and three things that did not go well/are not going well, accompanied by suggestions for improvement. The input is shared and forms the basis for next steps, planning and strategy.

Emotional Maps

Emotional Maps

Time frame: Punctual usage
Complexity: 3/5

Background & Purpose

We hold emotional mapping sessions in order to sense what is not being said and to provide space for people to express how they are doing. We do it periodically as a sort of soft track record. It helps us to make explicit any internal tacit conflicts but also some external pressures that can be a source for future innovations or just to better fit our environment.

Ping Pong Q&A Game

Ping Pong Q&A Game

Time frame:

Punctual usage
Complexity: 1/5
More info: http://

Background & Purpose

#The “ping pong Q&A” game will inevitably result in absurd, silly and often very meaningful input:

One person asks a question which needs to be answered without pause and minimal hesitation in exactly five words by all other participants. The game works especially well in pairs.

This restriction of five words and no thinking time causes some very curious effects including answers that are surprisingly deep and provocative.
