Korn Ferry’s Software Sector focuses on helping software companies attract, develop, and retain top talent. As the industry moves toward cloud and SaaS-based computing and business models, leaders who have entrepreneurial mindsets and the agility to drive growth are in high demand. We understand the need for the best technical talent as well as the importance of making sure your business has the right people to lead it through change. We offer a full range of solutions designed to address software talent needs — from strategic search services, competency-based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.
Acquiring talent is good. Building bench strength is better.
The demand and supply of the brightest minds and the currents of independence, freedom, and flexibility are all essential to software’s evolution. However, software firms today are realizing that as the industry evolves, traditional leadership skill sets must too. Smaller, nimbler start-ups compete with established contenders. New methods of going to market and delivering products are required. Entrepreneurial talent in development and sales and marketing are crucial to driving change and reinventing success strategies. Today’s software firms are looking outside and within to ensure they have a steady supply of leaders who can take them to the next level.
For the greatest return on talent, invest in potential.
