It didn't work because managers had to think too hard, "to whom have I given feedback?" "SHOULD I give feedback to THIS person, or wait and give it to someone ELSE?" That's 2 too many questions.

But once we're getting the hang of using the Feedback Tool, a little more thinking probably won't get in the way. And here's the thinking to be thinking.
