Succession Planning Masterclass

1 Day
Manchester 19th Jun 2024
25th Jun 2024

Course Overview

This full-day course takes delegates through the process required to develop a realistic succession plan to enable the business to deliver results consistently, even when key staff leave.
A realistic succession plan will identify who is capable of being an “emergency stand in” and how & from where the permanent replacement will be sourced.
A realistic succession plan is only one part of the jigsaw and adds value to the business if it is part of an integrated range of initiatives put in place to gain and retain talented people for the business.
This course looks at how to recruit and retain people, plus how to identify the skills and competencies required by the business now and in the future.
From knowing those who have reached their potential (solid performers), those out of their depth (underperformers) and those who are promotable now or in the future (key talent) we a can create a simple and realistic succession plan.
Delegates will be able to develop a simple succession plan based upon their knowledge of their own business (with the names changed to protect the guilty!)
