Publisher's Summary

Strong leaders at all levels within an organization are a requisite for business success. Yet the leadership pipeline—the internal architecture for growing leaders—is often broken or non-existent. This updated edition of the best-selling The Leadership Pipeline has been revised to help address the challenges of today’s business environment. Anchored in experience, it offers a tested model for planning leadership succession and development that has proven to get results. The authors draw on their work at more than one hundred international companies to report on what has been learned in the ten years since the first edition of The Leadership Pipeline was published. They show how a company can develop leadership in each layer of their organization by defining the different skills required as leaders move from one level to the next. They explain how time should be applied differently, how work values required for success must change, and clearly illustrate what inappropriate leadership looks like at each step. In addition, the authors answer commonly asked questions and add new insights from their in-the-field research. The Leadership Pipeline shows how today’s companies can keep their leadership “pipeline” filled and flowing to ensure a steady supply of skilled leaders throughout the organization.


What the Critics Say

The Leadership Pipeline has the ability to transform a company. The leadership concepts are enduring and simple enough that managers at every level can quickly grasp what it means to be a highly effective leader. The authors, Charan, Drotter, and Noel, are true leadership development ‘gurus’ and continue to provide us with the best thinking in developing the world’s future generation of business leaders.” (Abby Curnow-Chavez, vice president of talent management, Newmont Mining Corporation)
