Strategic Talent Deployment to Build a Talent Pipeline

Succession planning is more than replacement planning. It is a robust and disciplined process for creating talent pools from which individuals are deployed to support the ongoing needs of the business. But more than immediate business needs must be considered.

Research clearly shows that what we need for success is mostly learned on the job. Succession planning must address the strategic deployment of talent into developmental roles to build a talent pipeline. This session presents research-supported science to optimize talent deployment in your organization to meet current and long-term needs.
