Checkpoint 360

This report summarizes the results of the CheckPoint surveys that you, your boss, direct reports and peers recently completed. The job
performance scores you received are presented in graphs and numeric scales on the pages that follow.
A variety of skill areas are covered. In a progression of increasingly detailed skills, the CheckPoint System assesses 8 major Universal
Management Competencies, which break down into 18 Skill Sets, which encompass all 70 survey items.
Scores are determined by the 5-point scale used on the CheckPoint Survey:
0 Not Applicable (not averaged into scores)
1 Never demonstrates this skill
2 Seldom demonstrates this skill
3 Sometimes demonstrates this skill
4 Usually demonstrates this skill
5 Always demonstrates this skill
Feedback is reported in the following elements:
Executive Overview: Results for the 8 Universal Management Competencies, comparing the average Self score with the average score
of All Observers (includes Boss, Direct Reports and Peers) and showing whether scores fall within, above or below the Favorable Zone
(3.5 to 4.25). Also Total CheckPoint Scores, including the score differential between Self and All Observers.
Favorable Zone: The Favorable Zone represents the range where a group of managers and leaders were typically rated by others on the
CheckPoint 360º. These leaders were from a wide range of industries and organizations, and had all been identified as good performers
by their respective companies.
Executive Summary: Results for the 8 Universal Management Competencies, comparing the average scores of all reference groups
(includes Self, Boss, Direct Reports, Peers and All Observers), providing Total CheckPoint Scores for each group, and pointing out
group score averages that vary by 1 point or more.
Skill Set Analysis: Results for the 18 Skill Sets, comparing the average scores of all reference groups (includes Self, Boss, Direct
Reports, Peers and All Observers), and pointing out group score averages that vary by 1.5 points or more, as well as analyzing Critical
Skill Sets to establish Talents, areas needing Focus, and areas where a significant GAP exists between Self and Boss scores. (You and
your boss chose 6 Critical Skill Sets, out of 18. These were considered critically important to your particular job requirements.)
Reference Group Comparison: Results for the 18 Skill Sets and Total CheckPoint Scores, analyzing the average scores of each
reference group (includes Self, Boss, Direct Reports and Peers).

Reports and Peers) and highlighting the items that fall in a Critical Skill Set, as well as flagging items where responses lack consensus
(varying by three or more points) within a reference group.
Development Summary: Describes your strengths and development needs for the 18 Skill Sets and provides guidelines and suggestions
for your individual development plan.
