Track: Talent Management

Most succession plans are irrelevant to today's business challenges. Demographic shifts, globalization, social media and economic uncertainty have changed the playing field and what's required of leaders. There has been much talk of the new normal in business but little discussion on how to retool succession plans to keep up. The quality and depth of a company's leadership pipeline drive competitive advantage. It's time to take a fresh look at succession planning in your organization.
