Close-to-top-executives are critical for the sustainable development of your company. Beyond the specific functional area of responsibility, entrepreneurial skills are expected from close-to-top-executives; for example, the ability to identify new opportunities and drive innovation and change, as well as the willingness to assume entrepreneurial risk – whilst always keeping in mind the overall consequences of their actions. By playing a tactical role, they additionally serve as a link between top management and operative employees and are therefore responsible for translating strategy into practice.
At the same time, close-to-top-executives frequently have a short and relatively unproven track record. Their personality and professional expertise are still evolving and are therefore less sharply distinguished than those of senior executives. In other words, their entrepreneurial potential has not been fully identified or realised.
