View >>

Precipitous drops in oil processes and prices have resulted in declines in drilling and exploration, causing a round of layoffs to be announced by those hit hardest in the downturn. Earnings are down for companies that have made record profits in recent years, forcing them to decommission rigs and sharply cut investments in exploration and production.

Challenges related to commodity price shifts coupled with the impending retirement of senior leaders and skilled workers is forcing smart organizations to consider how they weather the downturn while still investing in talent development. How can leaders prevent the creation of supply gaps that will hinder their ability to take advantage of longer term energy innovation and sector growth?
