Hey everyone, hope you've all had a great weekend! 

I wonder if anyone can help with this - does anyone have any experience with setting up and observing performance management working really well in an Agile team with a Tribe structure?

At the organisation I work for, we currently have annual reviews where we obtain 360 feedback across the business. It's a bit of a split where it is being utilised by half the business with designated line managers and accountability for their team, for the the other half who are part of Agile/tribe teams, the reporting lines are flexible and accountability for team performance isn't clear. 

Here there are many inexperienced managers and tribe leaders, and a super manual performance management process. The business is quite set on keeping annual reviews annual so has been resistance to suggestions to move away from this. So far, we have implemented job descriptions, PDP's, got development and coaching programmes underway for tribe leaders/managers and are building a business case for systems to support performance management and enable more flexible learning. We also don't currently have competency frameworks in place so are looking to develop these with the teams and are doing some work with the business around the organisation structure. 

Myself and the Head of Talent & Development have been doing lots of research into what other companies have been done (e.g Spotify, Gousto, Google etc) but be great if anyone's been through this themselves and has any tips or advice?
