Noel Tichy is an American management consultant, author and educator, as well as a professor of management and organisations of University of Michigan. He is known for his contribution towards General Electric’s worldwide development as he led transformational leadership into action-based learning in the organisation.

Tichy talks about why most succession planning in organisations doesn’t work. It is, mostly in part, because these plans often remain as paperwork. Instead, talents should come from within an organisation, after having them go through leadership development programmes that are tailored for them.
