Program Overview
Succession planning is a key component for business success, enabling an organization to recover when critical talent is lost. An effective succession plan includes a focus on development, preparing individuals for future opportunities. Systematic tracking is also critical.

This allows the organization to move from reactive replacement planning to a proactive strategic solution.

Participants will also learn how monitoring, developing and retaining critical talent creates a positive impact on the bottom line.
