India ahead of China in nurturing leadership talents
A study by DDI, a talent management firm, on ‘Leadership at the Future’s Edge: China and India’ states that India is way ahead of China in terms of nurturing leadership talents, and Indian business leaders are much more effective with their critical skills and are better at identifying/ developing future talents. Only one in three Chinese companies deploy validated tests while making leadership selection decisions, compared to 44 per cent of Indian organizations, the survey says. About 51 per cent of the Indian leaders are satisfied with the current quality of leadership, compared to a mere 38 per cent of their Chinese counterparts. However, when it comes to retention, China fares much better, with 59 per cent rate compared to India's 49 per cent.
The survey spans 2,600 companies in 74 countries. About 76 per cent Indian leaders are better at identifying and developing future leaders compared to 56 per cent of Chinese counterparts, it points out.
