The Talent Wave presents a dynamic, flexible approach to succession planning and talent management. Clutterbuck first demolishes most of accepted practice in these areas, and then presents practical solutions which align employee ambitions and business priorities to ensure that organizations have the right leadership in place for ongoing success.
