There are lots of great ideas out there about changing Performance Appraisals, but how can we translate those ideas into great tools? Key components that will be important for the future are constant, consistent feedback, and the building of a reputation for someone’s strengths.
What about a Kudos tool that is easy to use, and tracks kudos sent to an individual? If we added an endorsement feature to the tool, users could not only describe the great work that someone is doing, but also endorse the skills and strengths that they used to achieve it. Over time, the kudos will accrue a record of someone’s body of work and their best qualities.
We’re working on this tool and have a prototype almost ready to go. Interested in seeing and/or contributing?
