An integrated leadership development and succession planning system designed for executives that leverage 360-degree feedback, a leadership skill/competency model, and individual development planning.

· To provide the necessary processes to grow the senior leadership pool for continued long-term success
· To maximize performance of executives in their current roles by increasing their capabilities
