Based on a Cambria study of the best practices of more than 20 other firms noted for their effective executive talent management, Cambria designed a succession planning process for US operations of a global professional services and advisory firm employing more than 50,000 associates.

This focused and sustainable approach to succession planning engaged current leaders in identifying and preparing future leaders; increased the firm’s ability to respond to changes in the environment and capitalize on marketplace opportunities; met the needs of the organization and its functions and channels; balanced long-term planning with short-term ability to fill key roles quickly; and created a larger pool of partners and principals with diverse backgrounds and the experiences and skills needed for key client-service and leadership positions.
