Introduction and Course Overview You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students 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. Pre-Assignment Review Next, participants will use information gathered in their pre-assignment to identify the critical people in their organization. Identifying Resources and Analyzing 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, individualized engagement plans, and succession plan profiles.

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.
