6. Succession Planning

Provide Structure for Succession Planning

Succession planning based on a consistent approach to core competencies supports you in building deep bench strength throughout the organization. The best succession plans start with defining the business plan and the core competencies needed in each role. The Skill Kit for Leaders (SKL) supports developing talent rather than replacing it. Focus on leadership development experiences before results are needed. Develop skills in responding to a sudden, surprise loss of talent, avoiding too long “time-to-fill” positions, complaints about people being unwilling to accept promotions, or that promotion decisions are made unfairly or capriciously, or even that your organization is not adequately hiring women and minorities.
