Succession Planning for Staff and Boards

Future-proof your organisation. Succession planning is the ongoing process of preparing an organisation for the transition of key roles and the handover of information, relationships and systems.

In many organisations succession is a frantic and unplanned process which results in extensive loss of corporate knowledge, continuity and social capital along with much duplication of effort and stress for all concerned.

Topics include:

  • Risks and benefits of different approaches to succession
  • Maintaining momentum and continuity
  • Succession timing
  • Recruitment
  • Organisational memory
  • Governance structures
    for smooth transitions
  • Systems and documentation
  • Mentoring and advisory roles
  • Handover and induction
