I'm not a mathematician, hence why I'm here. I would like some help with some references please so as I can prove a point.
Now, in work we are being assessed on our quality of work using the bell curve and our achievement to date. I'm pretty certain that this isn't really fair as some managers give people the correct amount of coaching and development time, some don't bother. My manager hasn't and consequently some of the metrics on which I am marked i feel are skewed.
for example I have had approx 50% of the amount of coaching and development time, where as another member of my team has actually had almost 200% of the amount of coaching time that the company commits to us.
Basically I want to show that just placing people on a bell curve without taking into account the other factors that affect their performance, ie. the amount of time people get to be coached and developed.
Can someone explain to me how to illustrate this point to them? That blindly measuring against each others performance while not taking into consideration the other variables is pretty inconclusive.
Sorry if the tags are not appropriate, as I said not a mathemetician
