Online Certified Succession Planning Practitioner Program


Change is a hallmark of today’s business world. In particular, the workforce is constantly changing – people come and go, and move into new roles within the company. In this context, Succession planning can help organizations by making the most of that change by ensuring that when someone leaves, there is someone new to take their place. The critical question for every leader in the organization is how do you pass on the mantle of a business or a role from one person to another to ensure sustainability and avoid business disruptions? Succession Planning is of critical importance to organizations as it helps to identify and develop the skills needed for current and future success, mapping the talent needs against the current talent pool to identify potential gaps, developing clear careers paths and encouraging self development and ensuring the continuity of critical knowledge and knowledge capital.

Succession Planning is the process of identifying immediate and long-term successors for key positions, planning career paths, ensuring the stability of people, ensuring the effective performance of an organization, determining the availability of people for now and future, developing high potentials & leadership capability in the organization.
