Global executive search firm IIC Partners released the results today of a survey of 1,270 senior-level executives. Most respondents occupy the C-suite—41 percent in the Americas; 30 percent in Europe, Middle East, and Africa; and 27 percent in the Asia-Pacific region. Across all geographies, the survey found that many companies have implemented formal succession plans, but the majority of those plans are not very effective.
