Succession planning was once only of interest to family run businesses that needed to ensure children were properly trained, educated and developed to take over.
Whilst this still represents the bulk of our work in this area, businesses are increasingly seeing succession planning as an integral part of the HR/People management process within any business and an increasingly important part of business continuity.
We use a 7 phase model to allow businesses to accurately plan succession for all key personal and positions.
Our approach is designed to ensure minimal business interruption if individuals leave or are promoted.
Succession planning projects usually take three months to complete with quarterly or six reviews as necessary to ensure they remain appropriate.
