Challenges of new leader assimilation

Telling statistics from the 2011 version of the study "Executive Transitions" sponsored by IED and Alexcel contains data from over 150 participants across 18 industries and 22 countries. Among the key findings:

  • Ramp up time for new external hires is most commonly between 6-9 months, according to 36% of respondents; 30% of respondents report it takes over 9 months.
  • Ramp up time for those executives making internal transfers within the same organization was expectedly less, but not by a huge margin. The most commonly cited period was between 3 - 6 months, according to 41% of respondents; 34% said it takes longer than 6 months.
  • 30% of executives who join an organization as an external hire fail to meet expectations in the first two years. 27% of new executives are actually gone from the organization within two years.
  • 23% of executives who make internal transfers fail to meet expectations in the first two years.
  • The techniques deemed as most effective to support transitions are often not the ones most frequently utilized by organizations.

Our Jumpstart Series

Jumpstart Series Logo

The Piras Group has a program specifically targeted to new leaders – from inside or outside the organization, or leaders who assume a larger organization or expanded function due to merger/acquisition.  This process is ideally suited to a VP, or high-level director and is designed to:

  • Hit the ground running with clear leader/team agreements
  • Accelerate leader and team engagement towards business objectives
  • Integrate and leverage leaders more quickly into company culture and strategies
  • Create value in the first 3-6 months
  • Increase the success rate for any leader transition

The Jumpstart Series combines leader and team assimilation, strategizing, and transition coaching to create a plan to learn, engage, enroll and succeed.  Jumpstart enables a leader to accelerate his/her contribution, quickly coalesce the team, and integrate more quickly into the company culture and with key constituents.

The Jumpstart Series has the maximum measurable impact when the series of services is begun with the first few 30 days of the leader’s new assignment.  Jumpstart is designed to both increase the success rate for any leader transition and to help the new leader create value in the first 3-6 months.
