The 9 Box Grid is a simple, yet powerful tool that can be used to support all aspects of the Succession Planning Process – from assessment and talent review through development and talent planning.
- The 9 Box Grid is a matrix; the 9 boxes in the matrix are defined as a result of the relationship between Performance and Potential when both attributes are defined at three levels (e.g., Low, Medium, High).
- Clearly defining both Performance and Potential at all three levels will provide a common language and set of standards by which talent can be discussed, assessments can be calibrated, and succession planning decisions made.
- Talent review discussions now will be more
The x-axis out here represents Performance and the y-axis represents Potential. Explanation of each box is as follows:
- Enigma (Potential Gem): High Potential / Low Performance
- Growth (High Potential): High Potential / Moderate performance
- Future Leaders (Star): High Potential / High Performance
- Dilemma (Inconsistent Players): Moderate potential / Low Performance
- Core (Core Players): Moderate potential/ Moderate Performance
- High Impact (High Performers): Moderate Potential / High Performance
- Under Performers (Risk): Low Potential / Low Performers
- Effective (Average Performer): Low Potential / Moderate Performance
- Trusted (Solid Performer): Low Potential / High performance
