Summer’s here and that means vacations are here, too.

Will your organization maintain its momentum during summer, or will your plans slow down or fall behind as your talented team members take off for their annual vacations?

In the new book I’m writing on accountability for McGraw-Hill, I’ve interviewed senior leaders at many of the world’s most admired companies.

The best companies cross-train team members so they can step in and not miss a beat when a colleague is away from work.

Others maintain a continuous interview practice to handle their growth and rely on a deep bench of talent to keep things moving.

Who will you call for back-up to keep your performance on track?
