Catastrophe or Crowning Achievement: How is Your Strategic Succession Plan?


As the Baby Boomer generation begins to retire in larger and larger numbers, organizations have a real crisis on their hands. How do you prepare the next generation to take over so that the organization does not suffer during this period of transition? Where do you start with a succession plan in the first place? How can you make sure that your succession plan works? These questions and many others are answered in this workshop. By identifying key job roles within the organization and putting together a plan for people to take over those roles when others leave or retire, you can avert disaster and provide for a smooth transition when leadership changes hands. This workshop discusses strategies for developing a succession plan and explains the process for setting up a plan.
