Succession Planning: Ensuring Continuity & Sustainability


In business and institutionalization, there aren’t a lot of sure bets. One thing you can count on as a CEO or founder is that someday, you will need a successor. A great challenge of leadership is that no one tells you what decisions to make and when – especially when confronting your own mortality through succession planning. The number of people in leadership roles who plan to retire in the next few years is higher than the number of people entering the workforce. Organizations need to prepare for this phenomenon to happen and prepare the next generation of leaders to move up. The loss of organizational memory (tribal knowledge) is not to be underestimated. The labour market is tight, and it’s an employee’s market. There is a shortage of top talent available, therefore, finding talent for leadership roles at your organization will be no easy feat. Succession planning is big-budget. Having the foresight to develop the top talent you currently have, actively recruiting top talent and making sure they have the proper experiences to prepare them for the future is an important strategy.

What will define the success and future of a company or institution is whether or not the CEO or founder(s) can expand their team, provide strong experience for future leaders, and create a succession plan that employees, investors, and other stakeholders can support.

This Succession Planning training programme caters to equipping participants with necessary tools for succession planning through effective analysis and management programmes. The programme outline is up to the minute and relevant to marketplace requirements, therefore catering well to all analytical prediction of training needs in the specified area. A customised proposal can also be arranged to suit the training requirements of your team.

Succession Planning features provocative sessions with an inspiring agenda with distinguished figures in the leadership space that will pose clarifying questions and help generate answers that open your mind to new ways of thinking and get greater value from strategies.
