Success of an organisation can be measured in a number of ways however the most valuable commodity in achieving success has to be it's people. Without people who can improvise, innovate, inspire, challenge 'the norm', and strive for continuous improvement most businesses would not survive long before being overtaken by their competitors. It would therefore seem logical for a business to invest in it's people and this should be considered at all levels, not just at a senior level. Everyone has to start somewhere and no matter what career path an individual selects, in order to develop they will require the guidance and supervision of more experienced members of the organisation to help them progress. If you look at a successful business you will usually find that there is a structured training programme for their staff at all levels. This will help fulfil the potential within individuals and also provide a good promotion and succession pathway, allowing internal appointments to be made of people who understand the business, rather than having to make external appointments which can often be expensive.
