360, 180 and 540 Degree Feedback

360 degree feedback would involve the person themselves, their manager, selected peers and selected people that the person manages - 4 dimensions.
180 degree feedback could be just the person and their manager - or the person and their peers - or the person and the people they manage - 2 dimensions.
540 degree feedback is where additional groups are asked to contribute - for example ‘customers’ and other ‘stakeholders’ - 5 or more dimensions.
