While 360-degree feedback is a powerful tool to develop Leadership competencies in an organization, the data gathered through the 360-degree survey process across management levels and the organization is too valuable to be ignored. We have launched the first phase of SelfStir Business Analytics to help organizations answer key questions relating to the group of people carrying out multi-rater feedback in the organization.
We designed a visual representation of the User Activity in the Admin Panel, which can quickly show bottlenecks and other hindrances to a successful administration and execution of a 360-degree feedback campaign or ongoing feedback initiatives in the organization.
While there are people who do not find spider graphs easy to analyze, this visualization style makes it easy to spot training and development needs across levels of the organization by each competency. This graph is also powerful for noticing hierarchical disconnects between levels of the organization. Ie. Peers rating each other, direct reports rating their managers, managers rating their direct reports and/or external clients rating the employees. It is also a great tool in assessing the strength of the corporate culture when competencies are selected to represent the values/behaviors of the corporate culture. Interventions to help develop those values will be easy to justify and get the buy-in from not only from the leadership team but also by the whole organization. The date filter will be most helpful when creating annual, bi-annual or quarterly reports, showing trends relating to: training strategy, ROI, recruitment strategy, culture development, leadership development, etc.
The trend analysis visual tool and filter has been designed to provide you with the ability to drill further down into the group analytics. The analytics tool provides the ability to compare results from different time frames allowing you to see trends across months, years or any time frame comparisons, while continuously showing the company benchmark results in real time. The most powerful aspect of this tool is the ability to drill down in the trend analysis to see results of an individual or by a group of individuals eg. by level or by department or by team. This analysis will show an upward or downward movement per competency scores over time.
