Sounds like a nice opportunity to define your
department-currently-of-one's future direction. For
the improvement areas, you will do yourself, your
boss, and your company a favor if you can align these
with the company's goals. Let's say, for example, that
the motto this year is reducing costs. Your
improvement could be learning a tool to reduce doc
costs. Or say the motto is quality, or customer
service; make your improvements fit those goals. And
do it for real, not just for this evaluation.
Personally, I hated evaluations, on both sides of the
desk, but you might as well use them as best as you
