The problem can no longer be ignored.

It is unconscionable to allow your organization’s succession planning process to languish as employee retention rates continue to fall, hurting both your public image and your organization’s bottom line. Your organization’s future success and potential for growth lie largely in the hands of employee talent. It is therefore imperative that management development leaders establish an effective and cost efficient succession planning and talent management system to satisfy corporate needs while addressing employee expectations.

An increasing shortage of leaders for all levels – from middle management to the executive suite – requires HR & OD professionals to rely on succession planning like never before. More than ever, succession planning has proved integral to the performance of the organization as a whole. Leading organizations have eradicated inexcusable management inefficiencies and roadblocks by developing critical leadership competencies and skills, driving improved business results and strengthening the growth and development of the organization.

World Research Group’s Succession Planning Summit: Optimizing Leadership Implementation Through Effective Talent Management and Tracking, taking place November 8-10, 2006, at the Hilton San Francisco Financial District in San Francisco, CA, will examine the challenges and obstacles to effective succession management, including leadership development, the management of high potentials and employee retention. The distinguished conference faculty will provide practical hands-on tools, best practices and case studies that share winning succession planning strategies. Gain a competitive edge by:

Ensuring a smooth transition by streamlining the implementation of a talent management pipeline
Driving outstanding service and performance through employee engagement
Developing core competencies to drive strategic development
Measuring and managing business alignment with leadership development and organizational goals
Achieving status as an employer of choice
Build Leaders, Retain Employees, and Learn from the Nation’s Leaders
