We help private equity investors, management committees, and boards of directors assess and develop the leadership potential of executives.
Our assessments begin by evaluating the client’s management team to determine which managers will be successful in that structure and culture. Engagements have ranged from evaluating new senior hires, to assessing executives of tuck-in acquisitions, to evaluating legacy management teams of businesses transitioning to new ownership. We can answer the following questions:
- Can the executive lead the company into the future?
- How much of an executive's track record is a function of the executive's capability and how much derives from luck?
- Will executives who have succeeded in senior-level but non-CEO positions succeed as chief executive?
- For newly-acquired divisions or businesses, which managers should be retained, how would they best be developed, and for which roles are they best suited?
- How do management teams need to be structured for maximal effectiveness?
- For rapidly growing companies, have existing managers outgrown their roles? Would the growing company be better served by looking outside for executives to reach the next level?
