From "azkuma" : Please find attached a ppt on the 9 box model which can be used for classifying people working in your organizations. This tool is especially useful for identifying leaders, potential leaders, utility employees and laggards as well.
Do let me know if you have any questions towards using this, I will be only too glad to help.

Dear Anand
Cld you tell clarify more on the following points:
1. Can this be called a Performance Appraisal? Or a management will have to do annual appraisal and the 9-box both to arrive at a conclusion.
2. To use this system, what all things to be made ready first (Performance parameters etc)?
3. How do you suggest to assess Potentials?

yes , this can be used to classify individuals who have been assessed .. you can use the 9 box for succession planning, leadership identification and even for performance appraisal. My recommendation would be that you use the model after performance appraisal so that you can look at see who are your stars and who are your future stars and who are your laggards ...
if your organization uses performance criteria like ratings on behaviors, work skills, delivery etc, you can use that as criteria ...
My recommendation for assessing potentials is to use behaviors, functional and technical skills needed for the role and then compare your individuals against it ... this will give an idea of how close are they in terms of fitting the promotion role into the future ...
if you need more help, let me know
