Introduction of 360 degree appraisal is no easy task. It requires lot of organisational maturity lest it does more harm than good. By the way, you may read my previous comments on this subject:

I agree with Dinesh.
Applying 360 Degree Performance Appraisal (a.k.a. multi-rater feedback, multisource feedback, or multisource assessment ) is not like the acquisition of a fixed asset. More than the technique, it is more about the organizational maturity and readiness.
Does switching over to this, has the approval of your CEO as the process-owner; has he been briefed about this and is aware of the modalities and consequences ??
Do you have any idea what it involves and whether you have made any attempts to sensitize and inform the employees about it ??
Is your oganization ripe enough to empower its employees to comment/evaluate on the performance of their superiors ??
Would your CEO (or any senior person) feel comfortable if his juniors/peers evaluate him with such questions as :
- In your opinion, to what extent is the organization making progress towards its mission and goals?
- To what extent is the CEO responsible for progress or the lack of it?
- In your opinion, to what extent are the actions of the CEO consistent with the values and beliefs of the organization ?
- List any accomplishments or strengths of the CEO which you found notable.
- List any deficiency or weakness of your CEO which you find is a handicap to his performance.
- What improvements would you like to see in the CEO's performance?
- Any other comments about your CEO?
This is not to discourage you, but to make you aware of the pitfalls, massive efforts and challenges involved in this. It is not a question of applying; but whether your organization is ready for it.

like what Shaina requested, could any one share details about Appraisal except 360 degree, could be 180 or any other method. As I have gone through many conversation related to the subject in this site I could see many details about 360 degree appraisal and found it isn't an easy task to achieve at least in the beginning.
so to start with the trend of Appraisal in an Organization what is the best way? which method to follow with out hurting the Management and the Employees?
Please request your valuable comments and guidance.
