(Signature Assignment: Oral Communications, Introduced Level)
Review the following video and follow it carefully as you prepare your assignment.
For this assignment, view the video, which immediately follows. The video explains an exciting new performance appraisal approach where 50% of the appraisal focuses on past performance, and 50% on goal setting for the future. This is a program called “Full Cycle Performance” which was recently rolled out at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. This system devotes time also to the setting of SMART goals. Unfortunately, many appraisal systems in organizations today do not give enough attention to goal-setting and future goal achievement.
The Full Cycle Performance is adaptable to all organizations.
