Potential Assessment

For an employee to move from one passage to another, both, performance and potential needs to be sceintifically evaluated. Any tips on evaluating the Potential ?

I have implemented this model within a large manufacturing plant - using psychometric assessments for determining learning potential and combining it with employees' Performance Management profile, together with other demographic data into a Matrix. This matrix is an excellent practical tool for leadership to understand their talent pool across the organisation and to identify high-risk areas. I am presently conducting a longitudinal research, over a period of three years, on the validity of this model - learning potential is used as the constant and performance ratings over three years are the moderating variables. I would like to discuss this research with other social scientists.
