The 9-Box Grid

The Trakstar 9-Box Grid brings a systematic approach to your organization’s succession planning. Instead of assuming an employee is or isn’t suited for a promotion, managers rate direct reports on a series of relevant competencies. The results are automatically displayed in an informative graphic that shows who should be considered for a future leadership position.

Data-Driven Succession Planning

Every employee’s score is displayed in a scatter plot graph organized across 9 distinct boxes. The horizontal x-axis represents the employee’s performance in their current role. The vertical y-axis indicates their potential to do more. Employees who land in the upper left corner are your superstars who should be tapped for a leadership role. 

Inform Your Workforce Decisions

Each box in the grid represents different levels of performance and potential, helping you discover employees in need of coaching. Some team members could be promoted with more direction and experience. Others will be identified as solid performers but lack management potential. And a few will fall into the underperformers category and need help getting back on track.

A Modern Approach to Succession Planning

Planning for the future of your organization is a must. Using Trakstar’s 9-box grid, you can successfully identify your future leaders and prepare them to step into a management or executive role when the opportunity arises.
