Understanding Succession Planning

Succession planning is the process of identifying and nurturing talent within your organization to ensure a smooth transition of leadership when key executives or employees depart, whether due to retirement, resignation, or unforeseen circumstances. It’s a proactive approach to managing change that helps businesses secure their future by developing a pipeline of capable leaders, rather than scrambling to fill gaps when they emerge.
