Succession & Leadership Pipeline

MISSION: Forecast, select, and develop high-potential talent ready to achieve current and future business strategy

Organizations that can successfully create top-tier leadership teams have approximately 10% higher three-year total shareholder returns than industry peers. (Corporate Executive Board, 2003). To achieve this stature, succession management must be an integrated business process.

WHY IS PIPELINE DEVELOPMENT THE #1 TALENT OPPORUNITY?

  • CEO’s realize that hiring “stars” is a tactic and not a strategy
  • Boards are becoming more involved in succession activities to safeguard business critical capabilities, and to prepare for the impact of retirements and unplanned departures
  • Research shows that most businesses still have an insufficient talent pipeline to achieve growth
  • Growth and globalization call for contemporary talent planning
