Programme and project managers of one of the largest municipalities in The Netherlands are working on increasingly large projects: complex projects with many different interests, large budgets, and tough responsibilities. This requires solid direction and specific skillsets. To better do so, a mirror is held up to them to help develop their talents.
Developing a feedback culture means talking with each other, not about each other. The Department of Social Affairs and Employment of the municipality of The Hague wanted a better view of the skills and visibility of project and programme management within internal projects. The performance & development interview cycle has been taking place using Spiegelapp since 2018 by means of feedback and feedforward.
In this vlog, we would like to tell you more about the Spiegelapp at the HR Live fair. At the HR Live fair, conferences and workshops are centred around a lively Expo with terraces and the meet & greet spots of HR Live's partners.
