Talent is a scarce resource. The level of competition and generational shifting of the leadership pool has made it increasingly difficult for organizations to find the quantity and quality of leaders needed to ensure success. At the same time, the torrid pace of change in the marketplace is making for an uncertain future, leaving many at a loss as to who they should even be looking for in the first place.

The war for talent will be won by companies that are able to identify their most critical roles based on the future vision of the business, determine if and how the existing leadership mold needs to be re-cast, and build the means of both finding and developing the right people for the job. This study of 260 organizations looks at how the Best-in-Class build and manage their succession bench to produce better results today and mitigate risk and uncertainty in the future.
