The Performance Management Sketchbook is an important tool in the PM Reboot process.  It helps you consider how well your current performance management program is working, guides you to identify what's most important to your future program, and help you get a clear picture of the gaps between the two.

Step 1: Assess your current PM practices. Rate your current  program against a selection of performance management best practices.

Step 2: Determine your design principles. Pick and prioritize your design principles for your new PM solution.

Step 3: Analyze the gap. Visualize your current state and your future state in reference to the three most important goals of great performance management: driving organizational performancedeveloping people, and rewarding equitably.
