Agile Performance Reviews that Don’t Suck

The end of the year if often the time for performance reviews. Should you still do this practice when you have Scrum Agile teams where the global results should be more valued than the individual peformance?

Many in the Agile community suggest abandoning performance reviews, but few offer suggestions for alternatives. A large percentage of software developers work in an enterprise environment where performance reviews are mandated. What if you could do performance reviews that will honor Agile values and not only suck less, but actually provide value to the individual and the organization? We have rolled out such a system successfully with strong support across the enterprise: from the individual colleagues, to people leaders, and even including HR. This presentation demonstrates the principles and the specific implementation of our system which you can tailor to your organization’s values and constraints.
