Building Leadership Pipeline
Identifying the most critical roles: For efficiency and impact, Arrow focused on the most critical roles – those with enterprise scope, strategic importance, significance for growth, and/or large P&L ownership.
Applying The Winning Formula® scorecard: RHR interviewed stakeholders with the most intimate knowledge of key functions to develop a prioritized list of skills, experiences, and capabilities necessary for successful leadership in each role, today and in the future. These scorecards served as the foundation for assessing current leaders, near-term bench, and next-generation talent.
Accelerating readiness: Once the assessments were complete, RHR partnered with executives to set objectives and planned ways to close capability gaps. Support for leaders included a holistic approach that engaged the entire system to accelerate performance—quarterly management check-ins, annual pulse checks, observations, and team sessions.
Tracking progress: The client conducted annual alignment meetings to form goals for the coming year and to ensure the company remained focused on talent opportunities of greatest strategic impact. Diverse voices were brought to the table to share insights for critical decisions regarding talent gaps, talent potential, and where new talent investments should be made.
Integrating live business issues: In addition to the annual cycle of talent management, RHR maintained close connections to the day-to-day challenges and opportunities of the business in order to ensure close alignment to Arrow’s long-term business development goals and its emerging business needs.
