Executive Summary: Developing and Broadening Specialists

Research for this report revealed that organisations are lacking in preparing effectively their specialists for leadership roles – and, indeed, in continuing to broaden and challenge them if they do not want such positions. The report describes successful approaches for specialists, and their employers, to manage transitions to leadership and the skills that new leaders need.

Here, you can download and view the report’s executive summary. The full report is accessible for CRF members only. If you are not a member and are interested in discussing membership please contact Richard Hargreaves on richard@crforum.co.uk.
