Given this evolving context, it is timely to review the approach of fast-tracking.
This issue has relevance for the Singapore Public Service as well, since fast-tracking is a cornerstone of its talent management strategy, and questions have arisen about whether our system has generated the right leaders.
However, the traditional deal for fast-trackers, in terms of long-term employment and upward mobility within the organisation in exchange for their loyalty and commitment (Iles, 1997), appears to be a quickly eroding one.
In the new business reality characterised by greater globalisation and the emergence of career types that span different organisations (Dries & Pepermans, 2008), not only are individuals becoming less inclined to settle for lifelong employment within a single company, organisations are also increasingly unwilling to give out such promises (Viney, Adamson & Doherty, 1997).
