How to Analyse 360 Degree Feedback: A Step-by-Step Guide
Once feedback data has been obtained from all raters, it must be analysed. As a critical component of the 360 degree feedback process, analysis enables the derivation of valuable insights and actionable plans for development. Here we will outline a step-by-step approach of how to analyse 360-degree feedback.
Identification of strengths and areas for improvement
The first step of analysing 360-degree feedback is to identify what the participants strengths are and what areas could benefit from improvement. Look for recurring themes and patterns in the feedback from different participants. Take note of the strengths that always stand out and the areas that could do with some work. Recognising those strengths helps organisations make the most of the person’s positive qualities, while tackling weaknesses head-on, leading to targeted growth. During analysis, you should keep in mind your business objectives. For help with identifying business objectives see our blog, Top 10 tips for effective 360 degree feedback projects.
Our 360 degree feedback tool creates a report that clearly outlines a participant’s strengths and areas for improvement. Click to learn more about UTEGRA 360 Degree Feedback below to download a sample report:

Establishment of Clear Goals
Drawing from the patterns unearthed through 360-degree feedback analysis, work together to establish distinct and quantifiable objectives alongside the person receiving feedback. These aims ought to be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound). Engaging the individual in shaping these targets cultivates a sense of responsibility and dedication to their growth.
Providing Constructive Feedback
Constructive feedback forms a vital pillar of the analysis process. When delivering feedback to the individual, focus in on providing insights that can be put into action. Recognise and appreciate their strengths and accomplishments, all the while approaching areas for enhancement with sensitivity and support. Constructive feedback sparks the drive for progress and encourages individuals to welcome chances for development.
Customised Development Plans
The final phase of the analysis process entails crafting custom growth strategies for the individual. Tailor these strategies to consider their particular strengths and areas that could use some development. Blend a mix of formal training, coaching, and hands-on experiences and mentoring to facilitate a holistic expansion. These growth strategies should align with the individual’s objectives and the organisation’s needs.
By embracing this step-by-step methodology, organisations can tap into the full potential of 360-degree feedback to steer impactful change and ongoing development. The insights gleaned from the analysis lay the groundwork for personalised development that empowers individuals to soar to their utmost capabilities, thereby contributing to the overall growth of the organisation.
