Organizations need a clear view of their critical leadership talent. We consult with organizations to help evolve a process that brings objectivity to assessing their critical talent. This begins with first identifying requirements for the target roles – past performance, business and functional knowledge, critical skills, experiences, leadership competencies, personal characteristics. We then evolve a systematic process for collecting this information on the candidates being evaluated, develop guidelines for leaders to assess their internal candidates and provide a potential rating and recommendation. Tools, templates and guides help transform a highly subjective process into a more fact based process.
