From the Inside Flap:

Is your organization truly prepared for the loss of your most crucial players? Are there certain technical or specialized positions at your company with only one person who knows how to do them? What would happen if your most valuable executive walked into your office right now, and announced she was leaving to accept a similar position elsewhere? Do you know how to cope with the loss of certain key members of the management team you’ve come to rely on?

In short: Do you have a rock-solid succession plan in place?

The definitive guide to a timely and timeless topic—now fully revised and updated—the Fifth Edition of Effective Succession Planning is an indispensable resource for any organization concerned with retaining the accumulated wisdom of its most valued employees.

Covering best practices, current trends, and the latest technology, this long-trusted manual provides you with the tools and guidance you need to revamp your succession strategy, create and put in place a new one, and arm yourself against the trauma of personnel shakeups...all without missing a beat. You’ll learn how to:

· Plan for and quickly fill crucial vacancies at all levels from top management to sales, administrative, technical, and production positions.

· Develop and retain top talent, building and preserving your organization’s intellectual capital.

· Identify competencies, values and ethical requirements for both planning and managing a succession program.

· Assess current needs and future resources for seamless succession planning.

· Use the latest technology to organize and implement succession planning and management programs.
