Episode Description

The buzz: 3X3. The infamous Human Resources nine-box grid, the end result of a larger talent management process, is intended to plot the progression of people as resources for the future. But it's often seen negatively by employees striving for the top right quadrant and by managers disputing its motivational value. Ultimately, even great performers can’t reach the perceived pinnacle of success. Is it time for the grid to retire or are we doomed to nine boxes forever? The experts speak. Anthony Abbatiello, Deloitte: “…the future is about exceptional teams and the leaders within those teams who can out-maneuver, out-manage and out-innovate their competition” (Barry Salzberg). Elizabeth Duffy, SAP: “Engagement. ‘You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means’ (Iñigo Montoya, Princess Bride). Sherryanne Meyer, ASUG: “Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity” (Wizard of Oz). Join us for Don’t Fence Me In: Performance in a 9-Box Grid.
