Initiating Succession Planning

What if one of your key people suddenly left the position? If this person's role affects your business ventures, direction, and productivity, could you find the talent you need if you only had very little time to do it? Would you scramble trying to replace that person by placing ads, phoning contacts, and taking the first available suitable replacement? You can eliminate such scenarios through succession planning. This can also help you develop talent for your organization for key roles that impact business initiatives and productivity. An effective succession planning program involves seeking out talent from a broad range of sources, assessing leadership potential, involving others in planning for talent, and using various methods to develop and prepare people for advancement. This course explains the importance of succession planning and building a leadership talent pool from within that motivates employees, increases retention of employees, and fortifies your business against the loss of vital people. It outlines the steps needed to create an effective succession planning program, focusing on the first step of the process, initiating the program. This involves learning how to align it with the business strategy and how to promote it internally to gain commitment throughout the organization.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize the characteristics of succession planning
  • Describe the role of internal promotion in succession planning
  • Match stages of the succession planning process to examples
  • Assess whether the succession planning process has been properly initiated

Effective Succession Planning: Determining a Talent Pool for Key Positions

Do you want to take the guesswork out of determining your company's future and avert a crisis if key positions are left vacant? Building a talent pool for your organization is a deliberate, systematic effort to find high-potential employees for key positions within your workforce. It's a smart business decision to assess current and future talent. In this course, you will learn about the process for determining the availability of talent. It covers the criteria for identifying key positions and the importance of planning for future key positions in your company. This involves ensuring you know what competencies are needed to perform the duties for key jobs by performing an analysis, competency identification, and a rating for each key position. The course also explores how performance appraisals alone are not enough to determine your talent pool. For maximum effectiveness, you should combine them with individual potential assessments to find high-potential employees for key jobs for your present and future workforce needs.

Learning Objectives
  • Determine whether a position is key in a given scenario
  • Recognize examples of appropriate analysis to perform to identify future key positions
  • Assess whether the procedure for identifying position competencies has been correctly implemented in a given scenario
  • Determine actions to be taken with regard to the succession plan's talent pool in a given scenario

Implementing and Assessing a Succession Planning Program

Succession planning involves more than just identifying high potentials for key areas and positions. How do you prepare those individuals for future work requirements and performance? And how do you know if your succession planning program is working? You have to systematically close the development gaps between what possible successors can do and what they'll be required to do for future positions. This involves creating individual development plans that meet professional growth expectations and organizational objectives. Once implemented, you then need to monitor your plans to ensure objectives are being met. In this course, you'll learn the steps necessary to implement individual development plans, including how to formulate and develop learning objectives that close the gaps between present and future performance. And you'll explore how to assess your succession planning program and determine its success by using effective measurement criteria.
