From the Paper:

""'Like falling off a cliff.' These are the words one UK-based manager used to describe the process of 360-degree feedback or, rather, the tangible end result of the process - namely, his personal feedback and what to do with it." (Murphy, 2002) The important part of developing a 360-degree performance program is to allow the individual and the work to identify the best possible areas for improvement and change. "The basic premise behind 360-degree feedback is to draw responses regarding leader effectiveness from upward (i.e. bosses, supervisors, etc.), peer level (i.e. co-workers, team-members, etc.) and downward (i.e. followers, employees, etc.) sources. These ratings are compared to the leader's self-ratings in order to determine disparities or blind spots. It is believed that such information will enhance the self-awareness of those being rated, subsequently leading to improved leadership skills through a better understanding of their own abilities, and others' expectations." (Testa, 2002) Studies indicate that anonymous feedback is more accurate and truthful and also nearer to actual facts when compared to feedback from raters who are known. (Ghorpade, 2000) It is generally observed that this analysis is generally used for management cadre employees who are able create a constant circle of assessment and feedback."
