Session Description

Succession planning is only partly about grooming the right person for the job. It also about the job itself. Think about when you succeeded someone. Could it have gone better?

In this 60-minute interactive presentation, Steven Ouellette, ME, CMC® will discuss the other side of succession planning – creating a job that minimizes disruption and maximizes the success of the person you have placed into it.


Learning Objectives

  • Understand elements of how to define and measure success in management and in succession.
  • Understand the benefits of creating a job that is easy for a successor to move into
