​Succession Management ​

Why invest in ​Succession Management?

Succession planning is a strategic process for identifying and developing internal people with the potential to fill key positions in the company. Succession planning increases the availability of experienced and capable employees that are ready to assume these roles as they become vacant. It creates an insurance policy for talent.

In today’s tight labor market, succession planning is critical to creating a flexible, sustainable business that can achieve objectives and survive change. The need to identify and develop top talent for critical roles has never been more important. But the fact is less than 50% of companies have mature succession management systems that are up to the demands of today’s business realities.

​These days, due to the rapid progress of information and communication technology, even domestic companies are being forced to compete with tough global players. Succession management and talent development are now critical to long term survival and success. Succession management systems that worked in the past may not be viable in today’s world.

​"Succession planning doesn't start with people. It starts with the requirements of the position."

​David Ulrich
