    Topic: Succession Planning

    Human Resources are critical for any organization.  Succession Planning is a strategic imperative to keep business flourishing. Yet, this is the one area where leaders struggle to prioritize.  The ability to match the right person to the right future job is often difficult, due to constantly shifting variables including skills sets needed and talent mobility. How can HR’s role in succession planning be made more effective? How can the succession planning process be improved to see better results for our organizations?

    At the end of this session, attendees will have a better understanding of:

    • What is Succession Planning and What Are the Benefits?
    • Connecting strategic business goals and future growth to drive the succession planning process.
    • Review best practices in techniques and tools including the use of the 9-box grid for planning
