This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.


This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.


Maintaining a quality leadership pipeline is a concern for organizations. Traditionally, high potential employees were identified based on proven in-role experience. Identifying recognizable potential leadership traits and qualities means “new grad” programs can be set up, recruiting final year university students and then investing in their training and development before fast-tracking them to management positions. This article investigates one such program, looking at its creation and operation, and highlighting potential challenges.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
