Learned principles for systems that works

Process must be “owned” by the CEO and driven by line management.

For development, Future Leaders need to be managed as a Corporate Asset, not a local or divisional asset.

In a matrixed organization, the Functions are the best drivers of Future Leader identification and development with consultation from Businesses and Geographies.

Competencies are easier basis for assessment than “readiness, or potential.” The definitions can be more behavioral.

Development goals need to revolve around creating an “Experience Portfolio” that prepares them for top roles, be those managerial or technical.

Regardless of assessment method, the vetting and agreement/ support by two levels of leadership is critical for defining who is a Future Leader.

It takes an organization 3 – 5 years (cycles) to learn and embrace a new/revised system.
