Planning for Succession – "Transition With a Twist"
Succession is a Change Process and it is more than a succession plan

This session looks at Succession from both a Change Perspective and from a Pro-active Planning and Strategy Perspective.
It addresses such questions as:
  • What are the essential elements of a succession process and plan?
  • Why is succession such a neglected subject and underemployed within companies?
  • What is the relationship between preparing for succession and the challenge of managing change as the succession unfolds (for oneself and for others)?
  • Why is taking a broader perspective in the succession process a critical strategy to long-term survival?
  • How should succession planning and execution be treated in a business that is closely-held or a family business?
After a presentation on the topic, there will be an interactive discussion and Q&A among the participants.
