Frequently Asked Questions Performance Management

Could someone who has responsibility for a group of employees (supervisor, manager, team leader) have a critical element based on a result that the group is expected to achieve?

Yes. OPM believes it is possible to develop a critical element and standard that holds a supervisor, manager, or team leader responsible for group performance. The element and standard would have to be crafted carefully so that it identifies measurable achievements that would be expected to result when the individual supervisor, manager, or team leader properly exercises his or her leadership responsibilities.
