The first systematic examination of executive succession. Melvin Sorcher, a consulting psychologist for a number of leading industrial and business firms, shows where American business fails in developing leaders and what companies can do right now to improve the quality of their senior management. Using the successes and failures of firms like GE, IBM, AT&T, Chase Manhattan, Citibank and Kodak, Sorcher establishes a logical, practical framework for predicting who'll perform and who won't. Supporting this framework are specific tools and strategies management can use to imp]ement an orderly succession that recognizes leadership--and that middle managers can use to strengthen their candidacy for senior positions.
