2012 was a year of tumultuous change. The global economy started to recover, only to be upset by continued high unemployment and uneven growth in emerging economies. Businesses of all sizes have struggled to shift their resources toward growth markets, yet they find a shortage of talent and leadership holding them back. High unemployment in many developed countries is coupled with a shortage of new and critical business skills creating a tremendous demand for training, talent mobility and leadership development.
