The problem

C-suite executives are rarely openly fired. They may resign “voluntarily” before being ousted and “jump before they are pushed”.

The analysis

We can attempt to arrive at a reasonable assessment of the likelihood of a forced departure by systematically evaluating observable evidence. That’s why exechange developed the Push-out Score analysis model, which helps in gaining more clarity.

The solution

The Push-out Score on a scale of 0 to 10 gauges the likelihood that a manager was pushed out or felt pressure to leave the position. A Push-out Score of 0 indicates that it is “not at all” likely that the executive was pressured to leave, and a score of 10 indicates that an involuntary departure is “evident” – for example, in the event of termination for cause or after an open dispute.

The Push-out Score draws on publicly available data along nine dimensions, including the form and language of the announcement, the age and tenure of the departing leader, the reason given, the length of time between the announcement and the departure, the share price performance, the circumstances of the change and the succession plan.
