Tichy draws on decades of hands-on experience working with CEOs and boards to provide a framework for building a smart, effective transition pipeline, whether for a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate, a family business, a small startup or a nonprofit. Through revealing case studies like Hewlett Packard, IBM, Yahoo, P&G, Intel and J.C. Penney, he examines why some companies fail and others succeed in training and sustaining the next generation of senior leaders. He highlights the common mistakes that can generate embarrassing headlines and may even call an organization’s survival into question, and reveals the best practices of those who got it right.
