9 Box Grid.

9 Box Grid

Main idea

  1. Assessing performance
  2. Assessing potential
  3. Bring it together (bridge the gap between current performance and future potential)
    (See https://www.aihr.com/blog/9-box-grid/)

When to use it?

The Grid is a snapshot in time. It could be used as a conversation starter for PRMs (Performance Reference Model). Based on where a person is plotted in the grid, a relevant personal growth plan can be initiated.

Example actions for each box are visualized in the figure below.

There could be human error in assessing someone's current performance and future potential.
