Why is succession planning important?



If your people are engaged, it is likely that you have implemented training and development that is directed to meet the individual motivations of each employee, ensuring that they remain fulfilled at work. Inevitably, unexpected and occasionally planned departures will occur and this is where a clear succession planning process is so important.


We all know that, with only some exceptions, a great salesman does not naturally become a great sales manager - the skills and behaviours are very different. So, how do you identify those in your current talent pool who can be planned to succeed more senior people, playing to their strengths and occasionally planning development and/or training to help them fill any gaps in their profiles? Well, you can always get in touch with maxpotenti.
