Mastering the Make-or-Break Process of Leadership Transition

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Noel Tichy has been the trusted adviser on management succession to companies including Royal Dutch Shell, Nokia, Intel, Ford, and Mercedes Benz. Succession distills his decades of experience and provides a practical framework for building effective transition pipelines - for multi-billion dollar conglomerates, family businesses or anything in between. Through revealing case studies - like Hewlett Packard, IBM, Yahoo and P&G - Tichy examines why some companies fail and others succeed in training and sustaining the next generation of senior leaders. He highlights the all too common mistakes that can generate embarrassing headlines and threaten survival. And he puts leadership development and succession where they belong: at the top of every leader's agenda.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 29, 2014 – Tichy draws on decades of experience working with CEOs on management succession for this in-depth guide, but neophytes beware: this is the graduate studies course, not Business 101. Backed up by ample details and examples, he makes a strong case for his specialty's importance, which he calls the most "critical leadership assignment... that business leaders are obliged to make." Tichy first shows how to get it right: across-the-board involvement, from the CEO to chief human resources officer, the board of directors, and trustees. From there, he shares stories of leadership transition successes like Ford and Boeing, and failures like Pfizer, Royal Dutch Shell, and J.C. Penney. His examples are skewed toward major corporations, although he does cover some noncommercial organizations and family-owned businesses, including the "gold standards" of those respective categories: the U.S. Special Operations Forces and S.C. Johnson & Sons. The book's appendix is a handbook that includes an events calendar, leadership slate, and assorted employee evaluation forms. Casual readers may be deterred by the book's bulk, which does not make for an easy read, but anyone who makes it through this dense text will be left with a strong foundation in succession planning.
