Planning for Succession: A Toolkit for Board Members and Staff of Nonprofit Arts Organizations

 
9780974110707: Planning for Succession: A Toolkit for Board Members and Staff of Nonprofit Arts Organizations

Succession planning rarely appears high, if at all, on the list of chief factors that determine long-term organizational success, but it deserves to be there. In fact, succession planning is a key to organizational success over time. Arts organizations, whose oversight is typically vested in a volunteer board of directors, present special challenges and succession issues are often relegated to the bottom of everyone's in-box. It's important to place them on the table, however, and address them thoughtfully.

This tool kit is designed to help board chairs and members, executive and artistic directors, and others concerned about the long-term well being of arts organizations address the question of leadership transition and succession. The organizing concept is that of strategic succession, incorporating leadership transition into strategic planning, and planning for succession as carefully as one plans the next season or the upcoming capital campaign.

Includes guidelines, checklists, best practices & frequently asked questions for arts groups and other nonprofits who are facing (or should be thinking about) executive succession.

From the Publisher:

This toolkit is a valuable resource for Board Members and others involved in arts and non profit organizations, as well as educators, funders, and those interested in the concept of leadership succession.

From the Back Cover:

"The process should not begin with a single, dramatic, out-of-the-blue event. Instead, a smooth succession is a flow of events that occur over time. Like a well-run relay race, the handing over of leadership should be graceful, carefully thought out, and well-executed."
