I attended an seminar on succession planning today. They made an excellent point that the company's strategies are only one part of the equation for success. The best strategies in the world will not lead to success without proper execution. The company's talent handles the execution. Good strategies + good execution (talent) -> success.

Do you think that Genentech is aware that someone with a fake LinkedIn profile pic is "working" for them in Sales? Same here - but since I recently tweeted this out, perhaps they WILL know and reach out to their LinkedIn rep and ask the tough questions about fake profiles.
So over lunch, I looked over BRENDA Donna's profile (yes, the first name is capitalized on "her"…Continue

I am not creative enough to make this stuff up.
Here's the scenario:
Sarah is currently making $68,000 and not in a management position. She started interviewing because she wants management, opportunity, and a different company culture.
