Summary Evaluation of the 360-degree assessment method Ugeskr Læger 2008;170(38):2973-2976 The present study examines the acceptability of the 360-degree assessment method as a means for evaluating the management and leadership competencies of the clinical staff of a university hospital. Twenty-eight consultants and registered nurses underwent evaluation. One group had debriefing with management consultants, the other with the head of the clinical department. Two months later, the applicability of the method was assessed. The strengths and weaknesses of the leaders were exposed, and areas for improvement were made visible, and acceptance of the method was widespread. Anonymity was required. The group coached by management consultants tended to benefit the most from the evaluation. Using a web-based solution to collect the data was unproblematic.
