What Are The Benefits of Succession Planning for Organizations?

Succession planning allows opportunities for leadership development at various levels within the organization and positively impacts overall organizational performance. Brown Plus will work with clients to assist with a smooth leadership transition so organizations can maintain strategic direction, operational efficiency and employee morale. Our professionals break succession planning down into three phases:

  1. Assessment Phase: We identify significant business challenges that might arise in the next one to five years and critical positions that will be needed to support the growth of the organization. This phase also identifies success factors like competencies, skills and institutional knowledge.
  2. Evaluation Phase: In this phase, our professionals consider high potential employees and choose the skills required for individuals to thrive in certain roles and effectively address specific business challenges.
  3. Development Phase: In the last phase, we capture the knowledge that individuals carry and implement a focused career development plan to cultivate skilled professionals ready to assume key roles.
