Talent Management: Post #2--Obstacles and Opportunities

Outside Obstacles and Opportunities. Ideal ages for emerging execs is 35-45. There’s a 30% decline in those ranks as baby boomers age out, creating a big deficit of available emerging leaders. Pipeline issues abound—aging execs, not good job rotation for high potentials, and a lack of succession planning. Globalization, demographics and poor pipelines add up to a disaster. There are huge differences between “the best and the rest,” especially in more complex jobs.  The best salesperson at Nordstrom outsells others by 8 times; the best developers at Apple are 9 times as productive. Message: Retain top performers or suffer mightily
