Along with the growing use of 360-degree feedback in organizations today, there is much disagreement over how it should be employed: strictly to help the manager develop or also to help those who work with the manager decide such issues as pay and promotion? This publication features the insights of a group of experienced professionals on both sides of the issue. To set the stage, George P. Hollenbeck, a management psychologist and adjunct faculty member at Boston University's Graduate School of Management, discusses the popularity of 360-degree feedback today.

    • The contents and the layout of the book are structured to ensure satisfactory proficiency for the novice designer.
    • The authors provide the reader with a simple yet powerful method for designing control systems using several sensors or actuators.
    • It offers a comprehensive control system troubleshooting and performance testing guide.
    From the reviewers:
  • Control systems are ubiquitous and their use would be even more widespread if more people were competent in designing them. This book will play a valuable role in expanding the cadre of competent designers.
  • This is a book that needed to be written, and its presentation is different from any other book on controls intended for a wide community of engineers and scientists. The book breaks the common cliche of style in the control literature that tends toward mathematical formality. Instead, the emphasis is on intuition and practical advice.
  • The book contains a very valuable and novel heuristic treatment of the subject.
  • .. one of the best examples of a book that describes the design cycle.
  • The book will help satisfy the demand among practising engineers for a good introduction to control systems.

    Feedback is a rare commodity in day-to-day organizational life, but it is a key to ongoing effectiveness.One popular vehicle for getting feedback from one's boss, peers, subordinates, and customers is the multiple-perspective or 360-degree-feedback instrument. Whether part of a management-development course or used alone, this kind of instrument can enhance self-awareness by highlighting a leader's strengths and areas in need of further development.Selecting the right instrument from among the dozens that are available can be difficult, however.This new edition of Feedback to Managers, the fourth, updates and expands the popular 1998 edition.It guides the selection process with an in-depth analysis of 32 publicly available instruments that relate self-view to the views of others on multiple management or leadership domains. Each of the instrument reports includes descriptive information, a look at the research behind the instrument, and descriptions of support materials.
