Using a template for the 9 Box Model will help you consistently apply best practices to your talent development and management processes.The 9 Box Model is an individual assessment instrument that assesses a worker's current and expected degree of commitment to the association. The vertical columns of the matrix demonstrate growth potential, and the horizontal rows recognize whether the employee is currently below, meeting, or exceeding performance expectations. The convergence of the two decides the representative's present standing and where advancement might be required.
The 9 Box Model is most generally used in succession planning as a strategy for evaluating an organization's current talent and distinguishing expected leaders. When leadership performance and potential are assessed and plotted on the graph, people in the upper right quadrant (Box 1) are distinguished as a high-likely possibility for succession, while those in the lower-left quadrant (Box 9) may be reassigned or taken out from the organization.
The boxes on the grid show where investment should be made to develop future leaders. Those individuals in box 1 ought to be prepared for a top leadership within a half year to a year; those in boxes 2, 3, or 6 have a more drawn-out timetable yet can be prepped for eventual movement to box 1.
