Abstract:

360-DEGREE FEEDBACK IS A PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT AND APPRAISAL TOOL DESIGNED TO QUANTIFY THE COMPETENCIES AND SKILLS OF FELLOW EMPLOYEES BY TAPPING THE COLLECTIVE EXPERIENCE OF THEIR SUPERIORS, SUBORDINATES, AND PEERS. Substantially better than the hierarchical, single-source assessments employees are familiar with, this multi-source system provides participants with a comprehensive interpretation of their performance from numerous perspectives within the organization. The objective of this thesis is to develop a 360 degree feedback system tailored specifically for the Dean position, Graduate School of Business and Public Policy, Naval Postgraduate School. This thesis presents a literature review, a case description involving the Dean position, and discusses a series of interviews conducted with key groups of organizational stakeholders. With the results of this research confirming the need for and potential content of a feedback system, this thesis culminates by presenting 360-degree feedback procedures and documents created specifically for the Dean position.
