Leadership Transition Assessment™

Strengthens the organization's ability to create meaningful career plans for talent

It has been common knowledge for many years that the best way to accelerate the development of talent is to give them stretch assignments. Stretch assignments are one of the best methods to accelerate the development of talent, as the learning that occurs on the job provides a meaningful approach. The question is, however, what defines a stretched assignment and whether an assignment can be too stretched.


For someone who's never worked abroad in a different culture, it's a significant development opportunity to work abroad. For someone who has never worked outside the operating function it will be a stretch to move to a completely different function like sales. For someone with solid experience at assistant general manager level it will likely be a stretch to move directly to senior general manager level. Performance reviews will reveal whether the candidate is ready to make this move.
