A tailored, risk-based approach to talent review helps organisations to decide the right level of rigour to use in assessing performance and potential depending on the criticality of the role under consideration.
Highest risk critical roles such as Executive leaders may justify more robust and rigorous assessment approaches to give confidence to role appointments and effectively target development.
Lower risk roles such as non-critical individual contributor roles and people managers that are also at larger scale may be suitable for less rigorous approach to deliver the required outcomes.
Figure 5 shows the options available along a continuum to balance rigour of the assessment and moderation approach.
