Rethinking Todays Succession Planning Strategies to Address Tomorrow’s Business Reality


Research shows that internal hires lead to better business results. However, most organizations still find themselves searching for external candidates to fill key positions. Most succession plans are irrelevant to today’s business challenges. Meeting the talent demands of new business models, changing markets, globalization, mergers and acquisitions, and new technology requires HR Leaders to rethink succession strategies.  The most successful HR Leaders in succession management deliver efficient and effective processes that align with today’s strategy, while keeping an eye on tomorrow’s business reality. Join us as we tap a dynamic panel of talent management leaders for their innovative strategies.  You will learn:


·         Understand pitfalls and future trends in the succession planning process and the business impact

·         Best practices for selecting the right candidate for future success

·         Methods to develop candidates for future roles

·         Understanding the business impact and how to sell the process inside the organization
