Succession Planning & Leadership Development
Harvard Business Review stated that the CEO succession process is broken in the U. S. and around the world. This results in poor performance followed by higher turnover and corporate instability.

Organizations must move away from the “replacement” mindset to measuring success long term. Are the right people moving at the right pace into the right jobs at the right time? Attention should be directed to capturing the intellectual capital that exists within the organization and developing leadership candidates.
