Based on the presentation, the readings and your own experience answer and discuss the following questions about the Evaluation the Federal workplace:
- Considering that many decisions, particularly in HR require a blend of subjective (i.e. driven by soft factors such as “fit” or “comfort-level”) and objective (i.e. driven by hard factors such as “ROI or “performance metrics”) what is the appropriate mix of factors in critically evaluating such things as employee performance, information presentations, or contractor proposals?
- What sorts of things are important when developing evaluation factors?
- How can decision makers be sure that all evaluators understand and are using the criteria in the same way?
- What are the consequences of poorly written or misunderstood evaluation criteria?
