Making the Business Case for Succession Management and Defining Key Terms


Why do organizations sponsor succession programs, and why should they?

The business drivers for succession management programs include concerns about terrorism, a globally aging population, explosive business growth in some regions of the world, and addressing key issues inside organizations, such as improving recruitment, development and retention, and managing downsizing effectively. This video reviews these drivers and discusses some reasons organizations are concerned about succession and talent and offer possible goals when making the business case for talent management and talent development.
