Strategic 360 Forum
I am organizing a one day event in New York City on July 24 for organizations that are using 360 Feedback processes for purposes beyond just leadership development. There is no cost. Any organization wishing to be considered for attendance should contact me. The representative must be a senior leader who has responsibility both for implementation and influence regarding its strategic use in the company.
Strategic 360 Forum
July 24, 2013
One day meeting, coordinated by David Bracken (OrgVitality), of organizations using 360 Assessments for strategic purposes, including support of human resource processes (e.g., talent management, staffing, performance management, succession planning, high potential programs). Attendees will be senior leaders with responsibilities for both process implementation as well as strategic applications. Larger organizations (5000+ employees) will be given priority consideration for inclusion.
If there is sufficient interest and support from the participating companies, the Forum would continue to meet on a semi-annual basis.
Location and Date: July 24 at KPMG, 345 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10154-0102
Tentative Participant Organizations: Guardian, Bank of America, GlaxoSmithKline, KPMG, Starwood, PepsiCo, Federal Reserve NY, JP Morgan Chase
Benefits for Participants
- Learn of best practices in the use of 360 Assessments in progressive organizations
- Discover ways that 360 Assessments support human resource initiatives, including problems and solutions
- Create personal networks for future situations
- Create opportunities for future professional contributions, including 2014 SIOP Conference
NOTE: The specific process and agenda will evolve as the organizers interact with the participants and discover their expectations and ways that they can best contribute to the event.
There is no cost for participants beyond their active contribution. Lunch is provided.
The core content will consist of brief presentations by select attendees. For attendees interested in participating in a submission for the 2014 SIOP Conference, we will use the format and content of their presentations to feed a proposal submission.
Presentations will be followed by a group discussion where questions can be asked of the presenter and alternative viewpoints shared.
Depending on the programs and interests of the participating organizations, we will explore select theme topics of high relevance relating to use of 360 Feedback. These topics may include:
- Performance Management
- Succession Planning
- High Potential Identification and Development
- Coaching Programs
The Forum meeting will also include a presentation by Bracken and Church based on their People & Strategy (HRPS) article on the use of 360 Assessments in support of (or replacing) performance management processes, followed by discussion.
1) As noted above, the content will be the basis for a proposal for inclusion in the 2014 SIOP Conference.
2) The presentations and discussions will be organized and reported to participants.
Interested organizations should email me with a brief description of the 360 process(es) you wish to highlight/share (purpose, size, longevity, innovations), and your personal role/responsibilities.
