What does it take to deliver a successful Executive Search project?
A successful Executive Search project that delivers first class outcomes, requires commercial business intelligence, creativity, initiative, a methodical approach and the ability to be fully immersed in the organisation’s culture and the Board/Senior Leadership Team dynamics. Having total insight of psychometric profile interpretation is invaluable.
We believe that each element is critical to the success of the project and ultimately the lifespan of the appointment. This level of hire cannot be rushed and demands a huge investment of time, flexibility and patience.
What does our Executive Search Process look like?
Our approach is two pronged. We thoroughly immerse ourselves in both the culture and objectives of the hiring organisation. Once established, a meticulous process is followed to identify and fine tune the exact profile of the “Model Executive Hire”. This process is simple yet highly effective.
1. Profiling the Hiring Organisation – We establish existing culture as well as culture goals. In our experience, exploring a little further than your industry sector can bring creativity, innovation and add value in supporting periods of change and transformation to your organisation. Profile the Board/Senior Management Team – We can establish the gaps and missing links whilst protecting the team dynamics where appropriate.
2. Profiling the “Model Executive Hire” – We establish the search priorities and define the following:
Market Mapping / Market Study / Talent Mapping
Hiring at C-Suite or Director Level isn’t a job for a traditional recruiter.
The OutThere Executive Search Team are advocates of Market Mapping and the Market Study. A deep delve and exploration of the market to see who’s OutThere, what your organisation structure could look like and the varying team dynamics potential.
What does our Market Mapping/Market Study process look like?
OutThere Executive Search can deliver a detailed Market Study and Talent Map. This is paired with organisational and geographical analytics to identify the potential calibre and overall costs for “High Value” C-Level and Director engagements. Having structured conversations at this level can take time.
Stage 1. An initial needs discussion/meeting to clarify – The scope and scale of the study and which competitor/comparator companies to study.
Stage 2. A Data Capture/Geographical Skill Set Analysis to establish – The volume of executives geographically that meet your search criteria commonly known as “The Talent Pool”. The salary/package expectations of “The Talent Pool”. The career history break down of the “The Talent Pool” and the competitor/comparator hiring companies.
Stage 3. Meet the Market/Talent Pool – Establish personal connections from “The Talent Pool”. Key Executives are identified and 1-2-1 fact finding sessions are attended.
Stage 4. Results Reported – Geographical Analytics. Market Study, Talent Map and organisational structure of circa 5 competitors.
