Throughout the year, employees reach many goals and have multiple accomplishments with business impact. Periodically, an employee must summarize and list milestones and accomplishments (e.g., for performance appraisal, promotion consideration, etc.). Currently, to generate this summary, an employee must spend hours reviewing past documents, email, spreadsheets, etc. Similarly, a manager is required to assess multiple employees' accomplishments; however, because most employees write self-evaluations to present the most positive results, it is not a subjective method for the manager to understand how well the employee performed.
A method and system is needed that can intelligently ingest an employee's communications throughout the year to produce a list of accomplishments with varying degrees of granularities. That system must also provide a manager with a non-biased summary of employee accomplishments and the related business impacts.
For the purpose of this disclosure, the write-up focuses on how to leverage the solution to aggregate the results of an individual; however, the same principals are applicable to the aggregation of results for a project, team, organization, company, etc.
The novel contribution is a system dynamically aggregates, in real-time the performance of a person/team/company/etc. and provides a non-biased, subjective view of the results.
The system performs the following:
1. Identifies communications that are indicative of:
A. The delivery, completion, business impact, etc. of a non-trivial project or task
B. The performance of the employee and the extent and method of the employee's contribution (vs. others)
2. Extracts quotations from relevant project stakeholders that demonstrate the employee's performance (good and bad)
3. Aggregates and intelligently groups the employee's projects or tasks into buckets. This includes grouping/sorting/filtering by:
A. Impact of project/importance to business using metrics, financial Impact, etc.
B. Return on Investment (ROI) based on the time invested by the individual in relation to yielded results
C. Dimensions (e.g., projects that demonstrate leadership potential, projects that demonstrate agility potential, etc.)
4. Provides a list of options to customize the granularities of these accompli...
