The information available on 360 Degree Feedback/appraisal is substantial and growing as experience in its use develops across a wider range of organisations.

The approach, with its origins in the late 60s and 70s, has a growing number of exponents and fans and would appear to have many advantages if correctly designed and operated.

This bulletin does not aim to replace the existing literature and advice available from a range of sources. Instead, it is designed to present a summary and quick introduction to a topic of growing interest. A brief list of useful material is available at the end of the bulletin.
