Executive Summary: Assessing Potential

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

This executive summary includes an overview of the full research report’s main themes, ideas and recommendations in relation to changing processes for assessing potential, to ensure that the talent management function can better meet the current and future needs of the organisation.

Topics covered include:
• What is ‘potential’ and what are the key predictors?
• What might ‘derail’ potential?
• More effectively assessing potential traits, characteristics and qualities
• The importance of past performance when assessing potential
• Aligning potential with business strategy and context for best fit

Here, you can download and view the report’s executive summary. The full report is accessible for CRF members only. If you are not a member and are interested in discussing membership, please contact Richard Hargreaves on richard@crforum.co.uk.
