I was happily running a class when someone asked about how performance agreements work if you are on projects.
“Really well” I replied, “you just need a new one for each project you are on.”
My answer didn’t seem to go down well though. After all, who wants yet another piece of administration to do?
Then we discussed the problem that both permanent staff and contractors often have with projects. Contractors get no real feedback on how they are going until their contract ends, while permanent staff have to have a series of discussions based on a document that bears little relationship to what they are doing on their projects.
