1.16   Monthly Performance Review

Productivity hack no.16 from '60 Ways to Hurray! by Ralph Varcoe.

If you’re having weekly one-to-ones why would you need a Monthly Performance Review?

Think of this as stepping back even further and reviewing where you are, where you’re going and what you’ve achieved.

In section 5.3, Keeping Your Public Happy, we’ll cover making your goals public to keep you motivated. Your monthly performance review is also your opportunity to update those around you on progress. Doing this every week is probably too often and the gains you achieve over seven days are probably not great enough to update on. But over a month the gains will be enough to show others your progress.

I’m not talking about graphs and spreadsheet reports. I am talking about being honest about what’s happened and where you are against the plan.

Ask yourself:

“Does the plan need to change?”

“Does the amount of time you devote need to increase (or decrease)?”

“What if I did it slightly differently?”

“Who can help me drive things forward?”

“Who can I get to do this or that task for me?”

Being clear on a regular (and formal) basis with yourself and others will keep you on track better than if you just complete actions on your own.

What gets measured gets done. Measure it. Discuss it. Adapt it.
