Organizational Development & Succession Planning
In Jim Collins’ words, "nothing is more important than having the right people in the right places on the bus."
Planning for the future leadership of the company can be the cornerstone to its long-term success. Shaping the leadership structure and ensuring that you have the right people in that structure is critical, as is the training and development that you provide to them. Planning for your own succession is equally as critical. Cambiar partners can assist you in putting into place structured and disciplined development, and succession programs.
Budgets, sales and marketing plans, IT strategy, financial reporting...all are structured, well-understood processes. Most companies, however, do not take the time and energy to apply the same discipline to talent and organization issues. Doing so will focus your understanding of your most important asset–your people. It’s not enough to simply have the right talent in place now. Planning for the future leadership of the organization can be the cornerstone of your employee retention strategy. Our partners have considerable experience with this critical planning process and can engage your leadership team in the thoughtful development of their successors. We integrate succession planning with organization planning, leading to a comprehensive roadmap for your talent management initiatives.Coming at talent management from a different viewpoint, Cambiar has a unique process for assessing your key staff to determine alignment, motivation, and development requirements. This is done through a qualitative interview process focusing on Cambiar’s set of key leadership behaviors. We can confirm what you may already know, challenge your assumptions and finally help you to develop action plans for each individual and their manager. If coaching is required, we can tailor a program to achieve specific outcomes.
