When Worlds Collide: Culture and Strategy

When Worlds Collide: Culture and Strategy

I once worked on a CEO succession planning project for a medium sized company in the Southeast. There were five internal candidates, all of whom were on the Executive Leadership Team and played key roles in formulating the company’s five year strategic plan. Four were long-term employees and the fifth had joined the company 16 months earlier.
