What exactly is succession management?

Succession management is all about ensuring that a company has a plan in case a senior leader, or anyone is not able to complete their job for an extended amount of time. Succession management professionals generally will build, hone and manage a succession plan for a company, along with any rising star or mentoring programs to keep young employees engaged. These succession plans can be short-term for health issues or long-term in case someone moves on permanently or retires. The important thing is that these professionals can work with senior leadership to ensure day-to-day operation are not affected if someone is no longer in the position. No matter the size of the company or the industry, succession management is a vital part of proper business continuity planning.
