From a recent White Paper by Taleo Research and Development Dimensions International
Leadership capacity and development has always been a key concern for executives and senior HR professionals. This concern has been heightened recently by increasing globalization and business complexity as well as the impending retirement of vast numbers of seasoned leaders.
Simply put, there are too few of Generation X to fill all the leadership spots that will be vacated by the Boomers. Leadership development MUST be hastened.
