Succession planning is an important strategic initiative for any organization. You don’t have to be planning to leave to have a plan for leaving. The loss of key personnel can leave your organization vulnerable and especially so when it is the leader of the organization. Whether it is an unanticipated temporary absence or the final good-bye, there will be challenges to overcome. In this session we will explore the many components of executive suc-cession planning that will result in a successful leadership transition while maintaining organizational stability.
