How does your talent compare to the competition? American Management Association has conducted research with more than 7,500 participants worldwide to discover what are the core skills that set high-performing organizations apart.

  1. The top 10 skills that differentiate high-performing organizations from the rest.
  2. What skill is more important than strategic planning—even at the c-suite level.
  3. Which leadership skill is evident at all levels of high-performing organizations.

AMA’s 2015 research reveals the skill sets that employees at high-performing organizations disproportionately possess over those at low-performing organizations. This study examines both the delta between the skill sets of employees at high- vs low-performing organizations, and the skills at which high-performing organizations excel. These two sets of data paint a broader picture of those core skills an organization needs to perform well. The report is broken down by job levels, including individual contributors, first-level managers, managers of managers, and C-level executives. The findings are based on current data through July 2015 and 7,647 responses to AMA’s Talent Transformation Tool™ (AT3).
