Succession Planning

dedicated succession planning services to support your business growth

Getting succession planning right is something of a balancing act. We work with our clients to ensure they have the right skills and talent for today while always looking ahead (as far as they can practically) to talent needed tomorrow, make decisions on whether to emphasise home grown versus recruiting from outside, meeting ever-changing business needs and ultimately, making the direct and indirect investment decisions needed to develop people at any level. 


Building World Class Teams

Given the timescales involved in tracking the commercial impact of talent initiatives, we partner with our clients to build world class leadership teams and to support them in maintaining the balance that is right for them (for some technical detail of our approach and methods click here).

Qualitative Appraisals

The key element underpinning our succession planning work is sustainability and this is readily visible in the way we future-proof the design of the gap analysis and in constructing succession. We advise our clients to exercise caution in interpreting the term “gap”. In much the same way our development activities reflect both “gap” of a talent exposure, so too our approach to succession planning reflects the need to stress positive potential too. 

This is especially important at senior management levels where there may be a shortage of available talent and limits to how able the business is breeding the next generation of leaders capable of performing effectively now while more so, demonstrating their fitness for the future.
