Why MFS is Better

The Management Feedback System is

MFS Is NOT Performance Appraisal

Organizations frequently modify their performance management systems - looking for something that really works. An increasing number of forward-looking leaders are eliminating performance ratings entirely. The Management Feedback System is a communication and development tool that focuses on the future. Built around the belief that the individual is responsible for soliciting feedback regarding his/her own performance and career development, the Management Feedback System's goal is continuous improvement and personal development - for the manager and for the team. To learn about ten leading performance management practices, we suggest Brandon Hall Group’s Performance Management Study.

MFS Is NOT a 360 Degree Program

360 degree programs use a variety of sources, including peers and subordinates, in an attempt to gain a more holistic appraisal of an individual's performance. The Management Feedback System utilizes multi source feedback principles but is completely different from 360 degree programs in several important ways:

  • The Management Feedback System does not rate the manager - it provides the manager with specific information about what their team members need to be effective in their own jobs.
  • The centerpiece of the Management Feedback System is the team discussion that takes place utilizing the specific feedback the manager selects within the context of business objectives and the manager's own personal development needs.
  • The manager is the only person who has access (and can share) his/her individual Management Feedback System survey results. There are no exceptions to this principle.

MFS Is NOT an eLearning Course

For centuries, classroom training has been the foundation of learning because it allows for the application of a variety of principles including lecture, demonstration, hands-on or experiential learning and retention testing. With technological advancement, eLearning has become a popular, lower-cost virtual alternative. The Management Feedback System is a web-enabled, guided learning activity that simultaneously addresses all three segments of the 70-20-10 (OJT/coaching/training) development model. Most significantly, participants benefit from working with their immediate team on real, current on-the-job challenges. This feature results in significantly higher knowledge and skill retention than either classroom training or eLearning.

MFS Is NOT A "Game" For Team-Building

Corporate team building exercises put an emphasis on fun in order to emphasize the importance of communication, trust, encouragement and support. In doing so, the hope is that the team will work more effectively when they return to the workplace. The Management Feedback System offers a much greater connection to results. By the end of the process, you will have a specific action plan designed to improve performance by meeting the stated needs of the team.

MFS Is NOT An Employee Opinion Survey

Employee engagement and retention are repeatedly mentioned by senior leaders as critical organizational issues. Given the implications for organizational success, the measurement of employee engagement through the use of employee surveys continues to increase. Many companies are looking to replace the annual engagement survey with more real-time measures.

The Management Feedback System is built around the central drivers of employee engagement - positive relationships, trust, and honest communication. Management Feedback System participants report a higher level of commitment and satisfaction as a result of their manager's responsiveness to their feedback and the implementation of the resulting action plans.

MFS Is NOT A Psychometric Test

Psychometric tests that measure intelligence, ability and personality preferences can be used for self-assessment and to better understand others. Widespread use can influence organizational effectiveness by enhancing employee selection, talent development and team dynamics. As a self-evaluation tool, the Management Feedback System is an alternative (or complement) to psychometric tests.
