Evidence-Based Global Succession Planning

2014 Annual Conference
Workplace Application: You will gain new insights that will help you craft solid global succession plans.

Global succession planning has an additional level of complexity beyond traditional succession planning. Not only do employees need to be evaluated and placed based upon their performance and career motivations, they must also be evaluated for their ability to navigate the turbulent waters of different cultural, political, and regulatory environments. This can be challenging when high performing and high potential employees have not yet worked in a global role. Even if they have global experience, how does a talent manager know that it’s the right kind? You will learn about the requirements for global roles and responsibilities, how these abilities can be evaluated, and what research among more than 19,000 leaders around the globe tells us about success factors. You will have the opportunity to discuss your experiences and gain new insights that will help you develop a solid global succession plan for your organization.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Monday, June 23, 2014 - 2:00pm to 3:15pm
