Assessing Potential

Organisations have been assessing potential with varying degrees of success for many years. Yet in our recent research report, only 47% of 224 respondents felt that they were somewhat or very satisfied with their evaluations.

Determining which employees have the potential to grow and handle the scope and complexities required of successful enterprise leaders is complex. Rather than looking for a single solution that works for all, this research offers practical advice from a number of different angles within the realm of assessing potential.

Our research draws on international good practice and has embraced leading academics, expert consultants and experienced practitioners in an attempt to provide practical improvement methodologies for assessing potential. Topics covered in this report include:
• The importance of identifying potential future leaders
• Characteristics, traits and components of potential
• Assessing potential ‘derailers’
• The role that past performance can play in future potential
• Identifying learning agility when assessing potential
• Aligning potential to organisation context and business strategy
