This interactive seminar will focus on helping define the roadmap to move your organization’s succession management process forward. While best practices can guide, they do not always adequately inform on what is the right succession management process and roadmap for your business. Leveraging some of the latest thinking and research, this full-day session will enable you to: 

  • Diagnose the current maturity of your organization’s Succession Management process
  • Understand the elements to be considered when identifying the level of maturity that is right for your organization
  • Share and jointly discover, with participants from other organizations, the different roadmaps and approaches
  • Explore, and potentially discover, the roadmap for your organization

As a participant, you will take away a toolkit that includes the maturity model, a diagnostic tool, and a decision framework for further application in your business. These tools will assist your organization on its journey to effectively ensure you have the right talent, at the right time, and in the right place to support strategic success.  This seminar will be very interactive with application activities and group discussion. The session is appropriate for both the novice and the highly experienced leader who is responsible for Succession  Management in their organization.
