ALL officers and sailors are being
challenged to be more open and
honest in their SPARS and NOPARS
under significant changes to the per-
formance appraisal system.
Chief of Navy VADM Ray Griggs
recently communicated via an All
Ship/All Shore signal that there was a
need for improvement in reporting to
assist with selecting and promoting the
"Our continuing challenge
with what I call 'truth in reporting'
is actually our own personal daily
New Generation Navy (NGN) jour-
ney through the embedding of our
Signature Behaviours," VADM Griggs
"This is about our assessors provid-
ing regular, honest feedback to people
about how they are performing, where
they are doing well and where they can
do better. Those being assessed have a
responsibility to seek out, listen to and
act on this feedback.
"It is critical that our performance
appraisal system identifies our future
leaders. I don't want leaders to have
shortcomings that could have been
remedied with more honest feedback --
our people deserve better."
In the last 12 months, as part of
the NGN Cultural Project 2 -- Align
Promotion and Advancement of
Leaders with NGN -- Navy has made
some significant changes in the
introduction of the Navy Signature
Behaviour Appraisal Development
