The Talent Wave: Why Succession Planning Fails and What to Do about It

By David Clutterbuck
This title presents a dynamic approach to succession planning and talent management. The author demolishes most of accepted practice in these areas, and then presents practical solutions which align employee ambitions and business priorities to ensure that organisations have the rightleadership in place for ongoing success.

"With "The Talent Wave", David Clutterbuck tackles the very real, very common challenge that every organization faces: leadership succession. Some organizations handle it well; some do not. Reading "The Talent Wave" will help those organizations who don't handle it well bring their performance up a notch, if not more! ...In "The Talent Wave", David explores these critical challenges of succession and proposes the critical conversations that must take place if succession planning processes are to be successful. And, most importantly, he offers a practical solution to navigating the complexity and change of succession in today's rapidly changing business environment, which is simply to support and assist those rising to leadership positions rather than command and control the process. As organizations have become less hierarchical, so it seems must the succession planning process become less rigid and controlled." --From the Foreword by Marshall Goldsmith, Harvard Business Review's Thinkers50 world's most influential leadership thinker and author of "What Got You Here Won't Get You There " "Insightful, leading edge and practical. An essential guide for senior leaders and HR professionals." -- Chris Roebuck, former Global Head of Talent & Leadership UBS
