What is the difference between Pulse (team feedback) and performance management (bilateral feedback)?

Pulse focuses on the joint analysis of the results within the team. Based on the feedback, the past period (often 4-6 months) is reflected upon and measures to improve cooperation and the working environment are implemented. Performance and goal achievement are discussed explicitly and implicitly, but always at a team level.

When assessing the performance of employees (often also called performance management), the focus is on a - often annual – discussion between employees and their superiors in which the past period is discussed and goals for the next period are set. Feedback here is usually unilateral, from supervisor to employee.
