Succession Planning–Leadership competencies to Support Org Strategy

Thursday 10:15 – 11:15 AM

Session Description

Succession Planning and Management is best described as an effort designed to ensure the continued effective performance of an organization, division, or department by providing for the identification, development, replacement and strategic application of key people. Given the current economic growth, historically low unemployment rates and the impending retirement of baby boomers; organizations are going to have look inside to fill many of the key positions that are going to be vacated by retirement and employee’s exiting companies for better opportunities. In the past, Human Resources has been responsible for Succession planning. I believe that’s a major misconception and is not a sustainable strategy. This session will introduce concepts to move Succession Planning and Management from a function of the HR department to an organizational strategy.

In this session you will learn

  • why it’s important to Succession plan,
  • how it increases the talent pool,
  • how it provides opportunities for high potentials and finally
  • how it taps the intellectual capital of your organization.

    You will also learn how to take a common sense approach to Succession planning.
