Succession Planning—Career Development

Book Description

Succession planning is often the orphan child in organization, ignored or perhaps mentioned but certainly not cared for and nurtured. This issue outlines the five components of a succession planning process: replacement planning, human resource audit, high-potential employee identification, employment input, and development programs. You will find strategies for development programs and clear advice on establishing learning plans for your organization. Several useful worksheets are provided including a succession summary worksheet, a learning plan worksheet, and key issue worksheet.
