A calculation of the number of successors who can fill a given position if the position's current incumbent leaves, based on their availability. In your source chart, the bench strength displays the value stored in your ERP. In scenarios, this value is calculated as. This can be found on position objects.

Value: String in source or calculation in scenario

Calculation Details: For each successor, bench strength is the sum of (1/# of positions a person is a successor of*).

In the following example, this is how the Bench Strength calculation is made:

For this position, there are four (4) people who could take over this position when the incumbent leaves. Each one is a successor for more than one position, so each successor's calculation is as follows:

  • Gergana Barshaw: 1/2 or 0.5
  • Isabel Glavin: 1/4 or 0.25
  • Elisabeth Templeton: 1/3 or 0.33
  • Marga Von Schneider: 1/2 or 0.5

The bench total calculation is the sum of all of these, so 0.5+0.25+0.33+0.5=1.58.
