These two recent reports by Deloitte seem to fit together like hand and glove.
The first, Board Leadership: A Global Perspective, describes the emerging trends in various major markets around the world with respect to the roles of CEO, Chairman (split roles or same person? independent Chairman?) and lead directors, etc.
The second, Fueling the Succession Pipeline, covers the key issues to consider – and process to use – when selecting a successor CEO. The two topics are not unrelated. The type of CEOa boardneed may be affected by the type ofboard leadership it uses. The right CEO may affect theleadership process… etc.
