Appendix

Individual Comments From Survey

what did you value most about this cycle of performance management individual comments
What did you value most about this cycle of performance management? Individual Comments
  • The opportunity to find out how my customers perceive the quality of the job I'm doing.
  • Data gathering enabled us to quantify that construction inspection was decreasing our submittal review response time.
  • Our consultant Janice Rouiller.
  • The survey provided verification of the quality of service DMCS is providing the NIH community.
  • The numbers show that last year's improvements have not only been sustained, but improved upon.
  • Honestly, I must state NOTHING! This ploy that the PMP process is management tool is hog-wash, the true intent of the PMP is to tie it to how much time staff spend in each function and to cut staff.
  • Interaction with OQM staff & consultants in analyzing performance.
what did you value most about this cycle of performance management cont individual comments
What did you value most about this cycle of performance management? (cont.)Individual Comments
  • Patrick Patterson, is the consultant with whom our team works on PMP. His skills & knowledge of all aspect of the program are excellent. He ensures that we ‘see’ the process & purpose rather than ‘just do it’.
  • The willingness of the ORS Scientific resources to be first in the rotation of PM conferences.
  • The use of data reporting template and the initiatives template.
  • Meeting as a group to plan ahead.
  • the introduction of the use of the Business Framework and the concept of the Balanced Scorecard.
  • It was helpful to focus just on the high impact objectives.
  • The Measures Reporting Form allowed us to look at the objectives and measures in a more relevant perspective.
slide114
What obstacles were most challenging to you during this cycle of performance management?Individual Comments
  • Preparing the report is painful.
  • Being taken away from my primary duties created undue stress and hardship when OQM wanted their deadlines met, yet they couldn't seem to get their parts done in a timely fashion.
  • We did not have the time to do the customer survey focus groups we had planned on doing.
  • OQM website is out of date and needs updating.
  • The challenge of continuing performance gains without losing any quality.
  • learning to use Excel and Visio.
  • Lack of time to devote to PMP AND perform ones own work. PMP is almost a full time job. This is an OQM function and should be performed by that staff.
  • Supervisors and managers should use data more often in their decision-making.

  • Getting all team members to contribute to the tasks of identifying relevant data and analyzing it.
  • The way the PMP was created in Excel with an entire page in one row of cells made it extremely time consuming & tedious to update.

  • Lack of a program area manager who accepts PM plans and manage their implementation.

What obstacles were most challenging to you during this cycle of performance management? (cont.)Individual Comments
  • Concentration on the Measures Reporting Form throughout the year caused the PMP to be neglected. At the end of the cycle, it took a lot of time to update the PMP to match the Measures Reporting Form.
  • The short notice and scheduling a report due for the week of January 17 was inane!

  • Have the ORS Office of Quality Management (OQM) staff do the work. In many agencies and in private sector companies this function is not put on the backs of the line staff but is performed by either consultants or an office such as OQM.
