The research goal was to analyse an employee's position from the top management's point of view, defined in two dimensions: employees' potential and their effectiveness. The article uses a brief literature review and qualitative research based on interviews with management. The interviews were conducted in two time intervals - the first part in 2018 and the second part in 2019. In the research, top management consisted of a Chief Executive Officer, an Agile Coach and a Human Resources Business Partner. The people in the above positions were responsible for retaining employees, creating possible development paths, and the utilization of human potential. Additional research purposes were to find out how the employee's position has changed over the years, and how much the leader's position in the team has influenced the changes. The study covered the situation of 34 programmers and IT analysts who worked in 8 technology teams. The assessment of the situation before and after twelve months showed real consequences of the management's decision-making process and provided recommendations for future research.
