Leadership development may be the most important thing any company does. That’s why, every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover leadership development to find the very best leadership development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to posts about CEO succession, Walmart’s HR strategy, training for critical leadership skills, and beyond the blend

From Ken Favaro, Per-Ola Karlsson, and Gary L. Neilson: The $112 Billion CEO Succession Problem

“Poor planning for changes in leadership costs companies dearly. Getting it right is worth more than you might think.”

From Dale Buss: A Look at Walmart’s HR Strategy From the Inside Out: Would it Work for Your Company?

“One of the nation’s toughest jobs in human resources has got to be heading up Walmart’s workforce of 1.3 million people, America’s largest roster of commercial workers. But as executive vice president of people for the vast chain, Kristin Oliver is focusing on the new opportunities inherent in a culture-driven transformation of the giant retailer rather than by the struggles of the past.”

From DDI: Critical Leadership Skills: What’s important is being ignored [PDF]

“Newsflash: organizations are focusing on foundational skills and ignoring the most critical skills! Many of the skills required to move the business forward are simply being left out of leadership development programs.”

From Charles Jennings: 70:20:10 – Beyond the Blend

“Of course the ‘blending’ concept has been around for much longer than the past few years. Apprenticeship training has ‘blended’ for centuries and the correspondence schools in Europe in the 1840s used blending. There are many other examples of ‘blending’ learning stretching back into the past, too. However, the incorporation of technology into learning or training delivery has given blended learning a boost.”
