Without the right succession planning put to play in human resources , we build for the future without a future
Success starts with succession. Succession planning is very important to any organization even though many managers shy away from it mostly because they do not want to give the impression that their subordinates can easily replace them. Weak and inefficient managers are the only ones scared of their subordinates and as a result, they keep information to themselves. Succession planning does not start with people. It starts with the requirement of the position. It helps to build the bench strength of an organization to ensure the long term health, growth and stability. The survival of any organization depends upon feed-forwarding succession planning. It is important that possible successors within an organization be identified quickly and groomed for leadership roles. In fact when you want the rainbow, you would have to put with the rain
A leader’s lasting value is measured by succession.
