Nodabl Guide to Performance Reviews
June 30, 2020

Performance reviews are a staple of corporate life, largely because they are often the only formal process instituted by companies for having an in-depth conversation on performance, growth, and development.

The value of a performance review is directly tied to everything that happens around the review - what was done in the period before the review, what is done leading up to the review, and then what is done during the subsequent period after the review.

We’ve prepared a series of articles to help you, whether you’re a manager or individual contributor, get the most value out of reviews - by making sure you are doing everything you need to do in between reviews.
