Current and Future Challenges in Succession Management


What challenges face those who work on succession management now and in the future?

There are many challenges facing succession management right now. And in some cases, the biggest issue is getting, and keeping, management commitment. Once a successful succession program gets underway management commitment tends to diminish because managers are problem-solving oriented people and when they see problems being solved they lose interest. That’s when the goals of the succession management program need to shift. This video reviews how to clarify the goals, roles and accountabilities of all key stakeholders in the succession management process.
