For organizations to succeed, they need to identify, develop, and support the leaders that will drive their future strategy. Effective succession planning is therefore essential for continued business success.
But what do executives around the world really think about their succession initiatives? Do they have a view on what best practices should be, and do their organizations follow it? What do they consider to be the benefits of and the barriers to successful succession planning?
Korn Ferry commissioned a global research project on succession planning. The results raise some significant concerns over the risks businesses are taking, while at the same time presenting real opportunities for learning and change.
