As we are now approaching the end of another fiscal year here at Microsoft (I know, hard to believe, isn’t it?!?), I am once again coming to you, the community that I have the sincere pleasure of interacting with each and every day in my current role as Director of Partner Experience here at Microsoft, to give you the open opportunity to rate and review my performance. Some of you I have worked with for many years and you have been through this before and some of you may be brand new blog readers, Twitter followers, etc. Regardless of how long we have been interacting, one thing you hopefully have seen from me is that I am very open about my goal to help increase the satisfaction of Microsoft partners around the world in working with Microsoft through things like: helping provide information of value and interest, providing correct answers to questions (even when they may not be the popular answers), helping address concerns and opportunities, directing you to relevant and important information, providing avenues for input into and out of Microsoft, connection opportunities with Microsoft, and much, much more. (In fact, I have this openly stated on my overview page about me) This year is no exception.
During our annual review process here at Microsoft, just like many other companies, we receive input and feedback from management and peers on how they perceive our level of performance over the past year. Given that my role has such a strong focus on working with and helping companies and individuals outside of Microsoft, like our Microsoft partners around the world, I am once again opening up the opportunity to all of you, the community I work with all year long, to provide your input and feedback on my performance as part of my annual review because your input, feedback, and perceptions of how well I am performing my role are very important to me.
Just like past years, here are answers to a few questions about the survey I have received in the past and/or figure some of you may have:
Let me offer my sincere thanks in advance to all of you that take the few short minutes to provide your input and feedback through this online performance review of me. Hearing from the community that I work with daily is one of the great parts of my job that I honestly love, and I cannot express how valuable your input is. So thank you once again to you all for your contributions to this request. Also, please share this with feedback opportunity with your peers that have worked with me as well, so that they too know about the opportunity to voice their opinions on my performance.
