Many 360 degree feedback solutions fail to fully deliver to the expectations
of both the Managing Director and Managers who undertake the survey.
This is because many 360 degree feedback surveys will only deliver results showing
gaps in the Managers skill sets without any follow up program to develop
the Manager around those gaps.
For anyone undertaking a 360 degree feedback assessment we recommend
you first go through a presentation Profiles offers that will go into
detail of how a 360 degree feedback survey works and what can make
it succeed or fail.
Profiles’ Internet-based CheckPoint 360° Competency Feedback System™
is a 360 degree feedback survey that is the foundation for a complete management competency development
program. This powerful 360 degree feedback solution positively impacts a manager’s growth
and an organization’s success. It gives managers a rating of their
performance by the full circle of boss, peers, and direct reports.
The 360 degree feedback report they receive helps them accurately evaluate their strengths,
areas for improvement, and overall job performance. This is the basis
for planning and executing a program of professional growth.
Participation and administration of the 360 degree feedback survey requires absolutely no special training.
CheckPoint is easy and convenient to use with secure 24/7 Internet

CheckPoint feedback sets the course
for professional development and better performance
Good managers strive to increase their effectiveness, but may lack information
to optimize their training and learning. The comprehensive Checkpoint 360 degree feedback
report is easy to read, understand, and use to fill the gaps in a manager’s
knowledge and skills. CheckPoint is the starting point for a powerful
management development system that yields results that are measurable
and verifiable on your bottom line.
The next step in the management development system is the SkillBuilder™
Series. SkillBuilder provides managers with a series of important
steps that lead to leaps in performance.
SkillBuilder is a self-paced, interactive Internet-based self-improvement
program that does not require special training classes or time off
from work. This organized self-study method effectively promotes professional
development in all CheckPoint competencies.
Managers participate in SkillBuilder on the Internet. They find it
easy to use at their convenience. After responding to questions and
doing online exercises, they click a button to print a customized
Self-Improvement Report. The report provides a detailed plan of action
for professional development.
By employing the KSS method, SkillBuilder helps managers identify
the activities they want to KEEP doing – because they do them well,
activities they want to STOP doing – because they are counterproductive,
and activities they want to START doing – because they will improve
Using SkillBuilder pays big dividends because productivity, cooperation,
communication, employee retention and profits increase while many
“people problems” are reduced. SkillBuilder is an easy and effective
method for better management.

The Organizational Management Analysis is an essential element of
organizational development. An OMA report presents a compilation of
the information obtained from the individual CheckPoint results of
a group of managers. Delivered via the Internet, the report provides
a factual summary of the perceptions of a management group with input
from the managers’ bosses, peers, and direct reports.
The value of the Organizational Management Analysis is in providing
a description of where are we now? This has been described as “the
fifth point of the compass.” The “fifth point” concept means successful
management decisions regarding the direction to take a company must
be predicated on knowing where you stand now. False assumptions often
lead to wasting time, effort, and resources. The OMA report is a guide
to future development based on statistically accurate data. When you
know where you are and where you want to go, you can chart your course
with confidence and certainty.
The Organizational Management Analysis process examines a company’s
culture and provides insights to the alignment of management groups
with the company’s goals and objectives. This information is used
to analyze the human capital expectations associated with an organization’s
long-term strategic objectives. The report also provides an analysis
of organizational development priorities and defines organizational
