Abstract
Organizations would like to be able to identify the fast rising executive at an early age. This paper is a pilot study in developing a method for identifying this "rising star". The authors first developed a list of capacity identifiers for observing executive ability or potential. From this list a sample set of nine capacity identifiers was selected and questions developed by the authors to determine an executive's capacity in those selected areas. Methods for validation of the questions are presented and suggestions offered for developing a composite capacity score which can be used to identify the rising star.
