At work we are supposed to setup "goals" for a "performance review" later in the year. I *HATE* things like this because I don't understand what I'm supposed to put in the document. It is FAR too subjective with NO defined requirements that I can wrap my brain around. They tell me it does not matter what I put so long as it's some goals, but I know that could not possibly be true because what I write must be approved by my supervisor. If it does not matter what I put then why should it need to be approved? This tells me there ARE specific requirements these goals must meet but no one will tell me what they are or even how many goals are appropriate or how detailed they need to be. They tell me it does not matter so long as there are "enough" goals. How many are enough? No one will tell me and I have no idea! What I think is enough may not be the same as what my supervisor thinks is enough and what he thinks is enough may not be the same as what the company partner thinks is enough... but no one will say how many are enough and how many are too many?
Gawd I HATE subjective problems like this.
Here are some examples... there are three basic types of "goals" I need to put:
- Professional Excellence Goals - Weighting = 60%
- People Goals - Weighting = 20%
- Quality Growth Goals - Weighting = 20%
