Help shape the future direction of Performance Reviews – Hack Day

Be part of an innovative approach to change and have your say on how we shape the future of appraisals and supervision at Devon County Council, starting with a hack day on:

Wednesday 13 April at Exeter CVS, King William Street, Exeter, EX4 6PD.

Our Performance Management tools such as supervision and appraisals have been around for a number of years and some people love them, using them to underpin all their Performance Management. Others dislike them, find it hard to apply them in practical ways, or think they should be broadened. There may also be issues with the way the tools are used, with some people being driven by the tools themselves rather than goals for improvement.

So the time has come to review and look at how we might revise this approach through a hack day. We hope to bring together a group of around 30-40 people to work out what needs to happen by reviewing Performance Management across DCC and what you need to support you by:

  1. Discussing and agreeing what Performance Management is really about.
  2. Pinpointing the actions that can be taken in your teams to bring about improvement.
  3. Designing methods and tools that can be piloted across the organisation.

This is a fantastic opportunity to help shape the future direction of Performance Management as well as to experience the “hackathon” approach to accelerating change. It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced user of our Performance Management tools, an advocate or sceptic, or if you are completely new to the concept – you can all help us.

The event, which has the support of Phil Norrey, our Chief Executive, will happen between 10am until 3.30pm including lunch.  We hope you will be able to join us. Please can you RSVP to 100daysofchange-mailbox@devon.gov.uk by 14 March 2016 and additional details will follow.

We would love to do similar events in North and South Devon so if you are based outside of Exeter, or can’t make the hack on the 13 April, and want to be involved please leave your name, contact details and location so we can plan the next one.
