I have 9 directs, and it currently takes about 4 hours to do each one's annual review. Roughly two hours to gather data from and two hours to write the review.
Since we do all reviews in December and I have a full schedule dealing with end-of-year work, I generally handle this by doing reviews on nights and weekends throughout November and December. It's tiring, to say the least.
Does anyone have any tips for doing reviews faster without compromising quality?
