Implementing an Effective Succession Plan

Fortune 500 companies and small family businesses alike share a business need - insuring that they have the talent necessary to effectively lead their organizations in the future. One of the most significant contributions a leader can make is insuring his/her business'continuity and sustainability - by having employees who are willing and capable of filling each key position with a plan for doing so when the need arises.

Succession Planning is a:

  • Deliberate, systematic process of anticipating the need for talent and ensuring that the 
    necessary employee competencies and experience are available when needed in the 
    future
  •  A strategic approach for avoiding an under supply of talent, enhancing the organization's
     current talent pool and meeting its future needs

Not having a Succession Plan can be costly and sometimes disastrous; it's expensive to recruit,
interview, select, on-board and train a new leader and significant opportunity costs are incurred
 when a key job is not being performed.
