2014 SIOP Leading Edge Consortium

The global environment is shifting faster than ever before. Business objectives change frequently. Knowledge work is increasing, and organizations are more matrixed and interconnected. With these new realities, leadership requirements are changing as well. For example, 31% of leaders are in newly created roles and all must be prepared to manage increasingly wide and frequently changing responsibilities. Despite significant time spent on high-potential development and succession management processes, only 28% of current leaders were pre-identified in a succession plan, and only 25% of organizations report they have the leadership bench they need, making succession management a foremost concern of today’s boards.*

The 10th Annual SIOP Leading Edge Consortium will be held October 17-18, 2014, at the Loews Chicago O’Hare and is devoted to topics that are core to effective succession management, such as how to:

  • Strategically align succession management with the organization’s goals and future direction, making it a business imperative
  • Effectively manage succession globally
  • Identify and develop high-potentials
  • Build talent pools that are strong, broad and diverse

Make plans to join your colleagues in Chicago for a 1 ½-day event to learn about the latest insights and strategies for managing today’s high-potential and succession challenges. It is an opportunity not just to hear presentations but to exchange ideas and best practices with respected peers in an environment designed to foster learning and networking.

The consortium includes lunch on Friday and Saturday, breaks, and a reception on Thursday evening. Registration also includes access to all presentation materials from the event as well as the Resource Guide, a compilation of presenter references and citations to relevant articles, web pages, and publications on the topic of succession management.

Registration is $575, but the early registration fee of $495 is available to those registering on or before August 29, 2014. In order to ensure the highest quality experience for our attendees, registration will be limited. To avoid disappointment, we suggest you register promptly.
