PHASE 10: SUCCESSION PLANNING

Identify and develop high-potential candidates and groom them to fill key leadership positions within your organization.

 

Succession planning ensures you can meet the future leadership needs required to drive your organization toward a positive future. It provides a pipeline of talent so that planned (and unexpected) vacancies can be filled quickly with the ideal candidate. With excellent succession and promotion planning, leadership can proactively identify who would backfill critical roles.
