Reviewing progress

It is important to review progress against your goals. At the minimum, reviews should take place every three months, but it is good practice for you and your manager to meet more often to discuss progress. As well as your manager, you will have other colleagues to support you.

The review meetings have a number of purposes. They can:

  • provide an opportunity for feedback on progress and discussion of any issues that have arisen
  • for some, they can provide an opportunity for reassurance and confirmation that things are on track
  • in some cases objectives may need to be amended. This could be for a number of reasons - the priorities of your role may have changed or progress may have been faster or slower than anticipated

Remember that these meetings are about you, so be prepared to contribute, ask questions and make suggestions. New development needs or opportunities may also be identified as you progress.
