Today, cultural and technical forces are reshaping the workplace and talent pipeline. In the public sector, Baby Boomers are a disproportionate percentage of the workforce and they are retiring at an accelerating pace. While Millennials and Generalization Z are disrupting traditional views on work – life balance and work ethic. Technology is also disrupting the workplace. It is creating the need for new skills and different ways of collaboration. As a consequence of these conditions, leadership succession and the development of an effective talent pipeline are paramount to the success of most public institutions today.
