9-Box Software FAQ

The 9-box is a widely used organizational development and HR tool for assessing employees’ leadership potential. Managers categorize employees into various boxes based on their assessment of both current performance and future potential.

This tool offers leadership valuable insights into how management perceives an employee’s potential for future leadership roles. It also helps uncover any potential biases that might affect an individual’s promotion opportunities, contributing to more equitable leadership succession planning.

The 9-box and the PVM are different talent review tools, which work well together. The PVM relies on performance and value-fit ratings, while the 9-box  uses performance and potential for leadership succession.

Once assigned a 9-box assessment, managers can simply drag and drop employees into the respective boxes and provide feedback as needed.

Yes! WorkDove provides a pre-built configuration to assist teams new to the 9-box process. However, you also have the option to fully customize the 9-box based on your organization’s language and specific requirements.
