Peer Groups in Agile Environments (LAST Conf 2014, Melbourne, Australia)

Published on

Session about Peer Group in Agile Environments at LAST Conference 2014 in Melbourne, Australia with Victoria and Bernd Schiffer.

Session recording on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FltOcEu1y8

Within the modern work environment, feedback on one’s own performance is essential - and hard to come by! The employee might receive it once a year, if his line manager is not too busy. But that’s far from what the employee needs to grow and what the business needs to flourish. Without feedback, adaptation and eventually improvement is impossible. Peer groups are an effective construct to provide honest and practical feedback. They are a serious alternative for performance appraisals.
In this session, we present implementations of peer group systems in various Australian and international companies, from simpler feedback rounds within teams up to complex companywide peer groups systems as a complete replacement for performance appraisals.
