To build a better system, recognize that Performance Management is actually two things.

Most solutions focus on measuring performance. And they don’t even do that particularly well, because they don’t account for a simple truth about rating people: we human beings are terrible at it. Even when you get that right, your system shouldn’t stop there. Because while measuring performance is important, driving it is kind of the point.

Performance Management doesn’t have to be an annual organizational migraine. StandOut cuts through the complexity and puts simple tools into the hands of the people in the best position to evaluate and to drive performance: your team leaders.
