“Achieving the desired behavioural changes that we know is possible from 360 feedback often requires doing less” - Marc Effron

OPTM 360

Talent Management Framework

Most of the 360 tools are assessment tools and not a change tool. They typically tell the managers ‘what’ to change not ‘how’ to change. With no clear priorities for behavior change, the typical 360 presents information that increases managers’ resistance to change.

These barriers can be overcome by OPTM360 a simple science based tool that:

  • Eliminates Complexity and Adds Value,
  • Helps Managers Focus on the Vital Few & not the Trivial Many
  • Promotes Accountability & Transparency

OPTM360 provides participants an opportunity to receive useful feedback from managers, peers, direct reports, or other internal or external clients, as defined by the organization. The OPTM360 accelerates individual development by making it easy for everyone to give, receive and take action on feedback. It focuses on the few vital things that people should change and provides them with specific relevant and practical advice on how to change.

SDF exclusively brings the OPTM360 to India. Some of the global OPTM360 clients are: Apollo Munich, Vermillion, Yahoo, Lenovo, Schneider, Pitney Bowes, Crane & Co and many more…
