Strategic Succession Planning

Strategic succession planning is an art. It is challenging because it requires human resources to go through everyone in the organization to find the best match. Another reason it is challenging is the potential long-term effects on the business if the HR staff chooses the incorrect candidate without recognizing it. However, if a firm had ongoing strategic succession planning for the organization’s top positions, the HR team will make fewer mistakes in choosing the right candidate for future replacement. This course can give participants an in-depth understanding of many important components of strategic succession planning to aid in developing and carrying out a comprehensive succession planning process to establish a larger pool of future leaders across all departments and levels.
