Product Description: The Comprehensive Resource for Designing and Implementing MSG Processes
As organizations strive to make the best possible decisions on critical issues such as compensation, succession planning, staffing, and outplacement, they have increasingly turned to multisource feedback (MSF) for answers. But while use of MSF (or 360-degree) systems has proliferated rapidly, understanding of its complexities has not-and many companies are moving forward with MSF amid a dangerous void of systematic research and discussion on this powerful process.

The Handbook of Multisource Feedback provides the most comprehensive compendium available of current knowledge and practice in MSF. The volume''s diverse group of contributors-which includes renowned academics, practitioners, and applied researchers-represents the acknowledged thought leaders in the current and future practice of MSF. Through their multiple perspectives, they identify best practices in the design and implementation of MSF processes and offer key guidelines for decision making when using MSF

The book offers solid grounding in the nuts and bolts of MSF data collection and reporting, providing a process model that leads the reader step-by-step through each phase of an MSF system. It details the developmental and decision-making uses of multisource feedback, describing MSF applications for improving executive development, organization development and change, teams, performance management, personnel decision, and more. And it addresses the realities of system forces that influence MSF processes, including legal, ethical, and cross-cultural issues.

The Handbook of Multisource Feedback will provide an ideal one-stop reference for practitioners, researchers, consultants, and organizational clients who need to understand the challenges of using multisource feedback.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
