Equipping leaders who can drive smart growth.

When automotive companies cut back to survive, they lost bench strength. Today, gaps need to be filled, the next generation of leaders identified, developed, and retained. Strategic vision, the ability to grow the company, versatility in building global talent, commercial savvy, the capacity to discern risk — all exemplify success factors for automotive leaders today. Additionally, as the baby boomer retirement looms, it's imperative to act now to equip the next generation of leaders.
