LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), a market leader in leadership and talent consulting services, today introduced Korn Ferry Leadership Architect™ Global Competency Framework. This revolutionary new competency framework is based on more than 60 years of research from Korn Ferry legacy companies Lominger and PDI NinthHouse. It targets unique business needs with the most innovative framework design on the market today.

Built from decades of research and the industry’s top talent management expertise, a client can implement the full comprehensive framework for their enterprise or a tailored model that fits specific organizational levels, functions, industries, and unique business challenges. Through Korn Ferry’s powerful research, each of these areas have been identified with what’s critical to an organization’s success.

“Today’s fast-paced business environments are in constant change and organizations need to adapt strategy and align their talent to succeed,” said RJ Heckman, president of Korn Ferry Leadership Consulting Corporation. “The market needs an innovative global framework that isn’t one-size-fits-all, but laser targets an organization’s ongoing unique business requirements while still holding its research integrity. This offering fulfills that need.”

To enhance global usability, the framework uses clear and simple language as well as relevant, high-impact, actionable development guidance that focuses on individual needs and empowers employees to drive their own development. Offered in multiple languages, the framework supports rapid evolution of organizational strategy around the globe.

Combined with Korn Ferry’s top talent management consulting services, along with newly aligned assessments and leadership development resources, organizations can be confident that Korn Ferry Leadership Architect will accelerate their business success.

Organizational leaders report the number one constraint to growth and execution of business strategy is a lack of right and ready talent. In a March 2014 Korn Ferry Institute study, 61 percent of leaders surveyed say their organizations either do not or only somewhat have the right talent to succeed in today’s changing global environment.

Attracting and building the right talent is imperative for long-term organizational success. Korn Ferry Leadership Architect responds to the ever-changing needs and priorities within today’s volatile business environment. Combined with powerful consulting, flexible frameworks are created that aligns to an organization’s culture to ensure effective implementation.
