Small Improvements Software


 

Small Improvements is a cloud-based platform that enables users to administer and manage performance reviews and feedback as well as utilize 360-degree, continuous feedback. It can be used by small to midsize businesses in a number of industries, including IT, retail, apparel, finance and media.

Small Improvements is comprised of four integrated modules. Performance reviews let everyone, manager and employee alike, know where they stand, and offer both praise and hints to improve.

360-degree feedback allows employees to receive feedback from everyone - coworkers, manager and clients. Once this feedback is collected and the performance review is finished, Small Improvements gives users a way to create and track their personal development plan based on that feedback.

Companies with longer review cycles can use continuous feedback to send quick words of praise, propose ideas and make suggestions and comments, which can be both public or private, depending on the message and company culture.

The start for our company into Small Improvements Review System couldn’t be easier. The explanations on the website for employees, manager and as well for me as an HR user couldn’t be easier understandable. After set up off all user accounts and introducing the tool to our team, they direct way started to work with it. Some small corrections by awesome quick help of the really kind consultants of Small Improvements, gave us the possibility to complete a review of 2012 for the whole company within two month.
All employees embraced the system with a positive feedback. I am brim with enthusiasm for the Tool and look forward to work with it in the upcoming successful years at Turtle Entertainment.

I use Small Improvements to manage the objectives of my software development team. I use the Objectives and Key Results (OKR) method, which works pretty well with Small Improvements. I just list the key results in the description of the objective. The comments can then reference one of the key results. Originally we set the objectives semesterly, and they got lost amid the day-to-day work we do. We then changed to quarterly objectives, and that works much better. I work together with my employees to set the objectives, and they know pretty well what they need to accomplish throughout the quarter. It is important that the tool sends out emails to remind people of their objectives. I can really see how employees are working on the objectives throughout the quarter.

Pros

- Manager and employee can continuously add comments to an objective to document milestones achieved, praises given, or changes in the objectives. At the end of the quarter I just read through them to come of with a rating for the objective
- Daily digest to employees shows them when comments are added to objectives, and reminds them to log in to the system and keep a running update on their objectives
- Performance reviews are done in writing by both employee and manager. Only after both parties see each others review we meet in person to discuss. This gives both parties the chance to think about the review of the other party, which leads to a fruitful discussion.

Cons

- User interface is sometimes a bit confusing. There are multiple views of the objectives, and you can do different things in each. Since the tool doesn't get used every day I often find myself trying to remember where I can e.g. set the rating on an objective.
- The tool offers a number of configurations, but it doesn't really guide you on a best practice of how to set and track objectives. I would love the tool to have a wizard to set up e.g. OKR that explains how to map that to the tool.
