America?s talent pool is shrinking, while the need for highly specialized workers is at an all-time high.

  • Identify the critical roles linked to these strategic functions, including incumbents who would be very difficult to replace
  • Identify the knowledge, skills, abilities and experience required for success in the business-critical roles
