Review & Update of Goal-Sheet
Periodic informal assessments can be made about the actual performance achieved and if the situation so warrants, and the appraiser so deems fit, the goals of the employee can be revised to be in alignment with the realistic capabilities of the employee. This can work for both negative as well as positive deviations.
Reviewing and updating of goal sheet implies periodically revisiting the goal sheet and assessing the goals as per the current performance progress. If there is reason to believe that there is a substantial deviation happening or is about to happen, then corrective measures must be taken to ensure that the execution process stays on course. In other eventualities, goals can be considered for revision as well. This can work both for negative as well as positive deviations. For example, if the rate of achievement is higher than expected, then goals can be upwardly revised as well. It is important both for the HR and the reporting manager to ensure that the employee has a buy-in for this practice.
