360 Degree Appraisal Mechanism : Indian Navy
The Indian Navy has recently implemented a groundbreaking ‘360 Degree Appraisal Mechanism’ for its promotion boards.
- This aims to address the limitations of the existing assessment process by incorporating feedback from peers and subordinates.
- Under this new mechanism, the Navy conducts large-scale surveys involving suitably identified peers and subordinates for every officer being considered for promotion.
- This survey includes a wide range of questions covering aspects such as professional knowledge, leadership attributes, suitability in war or crisis situations, and potential for holding higher ranks.
