Succession Planning: Leadership Development and Planning for the Future

From the 2020 Joint Annual Meeting (July 1, 2020)
Presented by Rick Panning, MBA, MLS(ASCP)CM
Succession planning is much more than identifying a replacement for an essential position in your organization. If done properly, it should be a process for developing your current and future leaders and preparing them, not only for the next step in their career progression, but also to support and develop people to optimally perform in their current roles. This session will provide a process template for succession planning which accomplishes those goals.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Define the purpose of succession planning.
  2. Summarize the steps in the succession planning process.
  3. Describe how succession planning can optimize the performance of individuals and teams.
