Demystifying Succession Planning: How Businesses of Any Size Can Build a Sustainable Succession Planning Program

Monday 2:45 PM – 3:45 PM

Session Description

Succession planning is a necessary and fundamental planning process to ensure the viability of the business as it pertains to the talent resources required for client delivery excellence and to fuel growth. Succession plans also outline coverage of key roles in the event of an emergency vacancy, ensuring business continuance/contingency plans are in place to minimize interruption and risk.

Developing, implementing, funding and managing succession planning can be challenging and cumbersome in “traditional” program approaches. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be! This is where strategy meets results in succession planning.
