To ensure that objectives are useful, applying SMART objectives is an effective element of any performance management that helps to maximise employee’s success and develop potential. Specific – by setting clear expectations Measurable – know if the goal is obtainable and how far away Achievable – deciding how the objective is going to be achieved Realistic – within the availability of resources knowledge and time Time-based – enough time to achieve the goal “Each employee’s performance objectives should be “SMART”, this makes it easier to identify how achievement will be assessed and how the employee has performed against the objective” (Public service commission, 2017).    Page Break5.1 Appraisal Performance  An effective way of conducting a fair and objective on employees in Toni and Guy is by using a 360  degree appraisal performance review. A 360 degree feedback performance review will provide more guide points of reference, it will measure how the individuals performs on their job, and it will open a better development conversation between an individual, team members, and managers. Using this method to review performance helps individuals to understand their own strengths and weaknesses as they are able to reflect on their performances and as well as help team members learn to work better as a team. “Multi-rate feedback makes the team members more accountable to each other as they share the knowledge that they will provide input on each member’s performance”. This will improve communication and team development. 360 degree appraisal figure   Page Break 6.0 Personal Development Plan “Personal development plan is the process of creating an action plan based on awareness, values, reflection, goal-setting and planning for personal development within the context of a career, education, relationship or for self-improvement” “The purpose of this individual development plan is to organize and target Maria’s professional and personal development.
