Succession Planning and Talent Management

Succession planning is a process for identifying and developing new leaders who can replace other leaders when they are promoted, leave, retire, or otherwise become unable to continue their current role. Talent management helps retain and develop the key talents that the organization needs to be successful.

Succession planning and talent management are future-focused activities that look out many years to identify, develop, prepare, and eventually assist the right talent for the right positions. Talent management is a strategy for identifying and developing future leaders in an organization — not just at the top but also for significant roles and key positions at all organizational levels.

This module helps the learner understand talent management and use the skills to build an actionable succession plan for their organization.
