We support you in the implementation and execution of your 90-/180-/270- or 360-degree feedback – a management feedback from several perspectives – for the further development of your management personnel. For this purpose, we use various technical and organisational procedures as well as our powerful Rogator software to conduct the survey efficiently and conveniently for all participants. You too can benefit from the many years of experience of our consultants when it comes to conceptual, content-related or organisational questions.

Your advantages of management feedback with Rogator
In an executive feedback with Rogator - no matter how many perspectives - we take your leadership guidelines and value systems and adapt the list of questions flexibly and precisely to your needs and requirements. In doing so, we integrate all topics that are relevant to your strategy and guidelines and provide you with comprehensive advice.
In addition to professional content and conceptual consulting, we also provide the appropriate technical tools and software tools (e.g. Rog360). You can therefore be sure that with Rogator you are commissioning an integrated service provider for your executive feedback.
Strict data protection
Data protection is one of the most important issues in executive feedback with Rogator. We do not involve any external providers and manage your data exclusively on our certified server environment to ensure the protection of your sensitive data at all times. We also ensure anonymity during evaluation.
Three steps to the best results
We support you in importing participants on the basis of existing organisational structures and check their completeness. To this end, we define feedback periods together, define the minimum and maximum number of feedback providers and participate in the preliminary communication on the project (e.g. information flyer or circular). In addition, we develop a questionnaire tailored to your needs.
Within the field phase, i.e. the specified survey period, the feedback providers give their assessments and the feedback recipients evaluate themselves. In order to increase the response rate, we also send reminders during this phase and remind employees to participate.
At the end of the survey, the evaluation of the feedback is made available for download in the form of reports. In these, a comparison is made between the managers' self-assessment and the feedback from employees. The reports form the basis for subsequent recommendations for action. During the evaluation, of course, defined anonymity thresholds are stored and adhered to in order to ensure the anonymity of the feedback provider.
An executive feedback from several perspectives
We will be happy to provide you with comprehensive advice on the exact design of your feedback process. The selection of the feedback provider groups is decisive. The more groups or perspectives you add, the more comprehensive and holistic the feedback is for the manager, who thus receives differentiated feedback on his or her behaviour in different situations. When selecting the groups, the organization and the actual working relationships of the managers in your company are decisive and should be taken into account. An overview of possible feedback processes:
- 90-degree feedback: Here only the direct employees of a manager are interviewed. As a rule, this is the basis of all management feedback.
- 180-degree feedback: In addition to the employees, the feedback recipient’s supervisor also provides feedback. Depending on the organization, this may sometimes involve more than one person.
- 270-degree feedback: In addition to the two groups mentioned above, it is also advisable to involve colleagues of the feedback recipient in the feedback process. Especially in matrix organisations or companies with strongly interdepartmental working relationships (e.g. in the form of project work), colleagues are also a valuable source of feedback.
- 360-degree feedback : Less frequent, but in some cases quite useful, is the involvement of another feedback provider group. In the classic case, these are external people who are in a working relationship with the feedback recipient. Some of the questions may have to be controlled for this group, which is technically possible without any problems.
In addition to the above-mentioned perspectives, we believe it is essential that the managers receiving feedback also conduct a self-assessment. By comparing the perception of others with their own, hidden strengths and weaknesses are revealed and a deeper self-reflection of their own leadership behaviour is enabled and initiated. This is a basic prerequisite for the motivation to further develop leadership skills.
Rogator advises you individually on all questions regarding the management feedback
When is executive feedback useful?
Whenever it is necessary to evaluate and strengthen the management culture, the implementation and effectiveness of management guidelines and competency models or management development in general.
How long should the feedback questionnaire be?
The length of the questionnaire varies substantially between projects. Between 30 and 70 items are the rule, whereby the questionnaire length usually has only a minor influence on the response. Our experts will be happy to inform you about other relevant factors.
Open questions within the management feedback?he management feedback?
Open questions can provide valuable additional input and uncover previously unknown problems or potential. In order not to make individual statements appear too prominent, Rogator recommends limiting the number of characters. To preserve anonymity (especially in small companies), a reference to neutral formulation of the open answer is helpful.
Who receives the results reports of the executive feedback?
As a rule, the managers themselves and, in addition, the Human Resources department and/or their supervisor receive the report. The report delivery is defined individually for each customer and is automated in all forms by the software.
Is there a follow-up process?
Of course, because after the executive feedback the important work begins with the results. Rogator offers the full range of follow-up processes following executive feedback. The measures of the follow-up process range from support for self-reflection on the results, through results workshops with managers and teams, to individual and group coaching.
Is data protection and anonymity of the participants guaranteed?
Implementation by an external survey institute such as Rogator offers a clear advantage over internal implementation. Pseudonymised survey links, minimum participant numbers and anonymity thresholds contribute to the highest possible level of data protection.
