The performance and potential matrix (9 box model) is one of the most widely used tools in succession planning and development. It can be a valuable tool for anyone who works in talent management, or for any manager.
The performance and potential matrix, commonly referred to as “the nine box”, is a simple yet effective tool used to assess talent in organisations. It assesses individuals on two dimensions – their past performance and their future potential.
The X axis (horizontal line) of 3 boxes assesses leadership performance and the Y axis of 3 boxes (vertical line) assesses leadership potential. A combination of Y and X axis makes up the box within the grid that the leader is placed. 1A - High Performance/High Potential, 3C - Low Performance/Low Potential, etc...
The tool is best if used by a team and facilitated by someone who has experience with the process.
