There's no doubt about it. HR and senior leaders in most organizations have spent some time considering the ideal succession program. Executed well, succession planning can help your organization respond effectively to change, recruit and retain the best talent, and support organizational growth.

But you'll notice some big differences in companies that value and execute a best-practices succession planning program vs. those that do not. Here are just a few of the elements that successful programs share in common:

  • Competency models are effectively used to measure the performance standards for each position.
  • Promotion readiness is measured effectively because each position has clear standards in place.
  • Competency models are effectively used to measure the performance standards and promotion readiness.
  • Want to see how your organization compares to best practice?
