Manager Succession Planning

Manager succession planning is the process of finding a successor for managerial roles that are either niche, challenging to recruit or critical to an organization’s growth. Managerial succession planning ensures that managers and organizations continue with their business as usual, without interruptions, amid transitions caused by attrition, death or a change of guard.

Managerial succession planning is a process by which new internal managers are identified and developed to replace existing managers to ensure business continuity. It is facilitated via cross-training processes and individual and team-work plans, aligned with departments or organizational strategies to find viable successors. Managerial succession planning has a positive impact on the workforce as it prepares them for career progression.
