Notes to answerer
Asker: Some additional info: at this company, they will hold a målsamtal when there's no time for a proper performance review (medarbetarsamtal). So I'd like to maintain some sort of distinction.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Katarina Lindve: This was what it was called in the English-speaking companies I worked for.
1 hr
  -> Thank you very much!

agree  De Novi: Performance Evaluation Meeting
4 hrs
  -> :o)

disagree  Catherine Brix: Performance evaluation review (utvecklingssamtal) is more comprehensive than just personal target reviews that are mostly updates/follow-ups. The point is not to discuss performance but whether set objectives are being realized.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Sven Petersson: That would be totally misleading.
2 hrs
  -> Totally, why?

agree  Catherine Brix: What about "personal target review meeting" so as to distinguish between a comprehensive performance review and personal target/objectives review which may simply be a meeting to check that training is booked, milestones passed, etc...
11 hrs
  -> I prefer keeping strictly to the question; speculation as to possibilities and thoughts of the author or Asker are risky.

agree  Mario Marcolin: alt. target review meeting
42 days
  -> Thank you Mario.
