Case Study #13 “Building for leadership transition”
Accelerating Leadership Transition–Linking HR to organizational vision
Situation: A Fast growing high-tech organization was growing faster than its employee resources. In field locations, managers were chosen on ‘availability and assumptions’, not criteria.
Action: Dave spearheaded a field Management Assessment Center. Potential managers were brought in , went through a series of observed exercises, and given an assessment. This assessment by selected regional managers became the foundation of mentoring assignments that the district managers could follow and coach their employees to prepare for management.
Result: In an incredibly short time, it became a win-win for all. A prepared pool of candidates was developed and employees knew how they could prepare for a new career opportunity.
