Succession planning is among the most critical elements of ensuring an organization’s long-term health, yet remains an area that is often under-emphasized by even the best, most vital companies.
With the rapid retirement of key leaders at American corporations and non-profits due to the aging Baby Boomer population, succession planning is perhaps more important now than ever.
Organizations are being affected by succession trends in two major ways:
1. A need to plan optimally for senior management departures alongside the thoughtful development of strategies to advance existing staff into new roles
2. A need to replace the existing cadre of board leadership.
