Change is a hallmark of today’s business world. In particular, our workforce is constantly changing – people come and go, and move into new roles within the company. Succession planning can help you make the most of that change by ensuring that when someone leaves, there is someone new to take their place.
This one-day course will help you learn about the basics for creating and maintaining a succession plan.
Delegates will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
A Need for Succession Planning
To begin, participants will explore the differences between succession planning and replacement hiring, including some of the advantages of succession planning.
Defining a Succession Plan
This session introduces the SUCCESS acronym, which defines the succession plan process that the remainder of the course will focus on.
Next, participants will use information gathered in their pre-assignment to identify the critical people in their organisation.
Identifying Resources and Analysing Risks
This session will give participants some tools to identify internal and external successors. We will also look at a sample risk assessment.
Defining Roles, Responsibilities, and Functions
During this session, participants will start creating risk assessments, individualised engagement plans, and succession plan profiles.
This session will help participants identify ways to look within their own organisations and determine what the critical positions are.
There are six key ingredients to being able to forecast what people you will need when. Participants will explore each item in small groups. Participants will also learn about the role of coaching and mentoring.
Putting the Plan Together
Next, participants will learn about using Appreciative Inquiry and Leadership Quality Assessments to develop a succession plan.
Putting the Plan into Action
During this session, participants will explore the idea of phased implementation. We will also look at using technology to facilitate putting the plan into action.
Evaluating and Reviewing the Plan
This session will look at the importance of evaluation. Participants will also work on modifying an evaluation checklist to suit their organisation’s needs.
Your Action Plan
To wrap up the day, participants will identify their next steps and participate in a review exercise.
At the end of the course, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.

We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
