Abstract:

This paper proposes a decision support system DSS to assist in assigning senior leaders to positions using matching of strategic leadership competencies. It takes a holistic, portfolio-based approach to determine the best overall assignment of available officers to all positions. Additionally, it allows decision makers to impose additional constraint and communicates the impact of such decisions on the resulting quality of the overall set of assignments. The use of visualization allows for rapid comprehension of information in a short period of time. The current assignment process and some of its shortcomings are considered briefly. A small example is provided to illustrate how the methodology could be used. Some extensions to incorporate other considerations are mentioned, but not explored in depth.
