Succession planning has emerged as an important issue as the world’s population ages under the dual impact of falling birthrates globally and improved healthcare. No longer is it easy to assume that young people will occupy traditional entry-level positions. Nor is it easy to fill positions from outside as other organizations scramble to make up for years of downsizing and cost-cutting. Succession planning can be systematic and can be effectively implemented, but that requires knowledgeable leaders who are committed to developing their people. This webinar will define succession planning, distinguish it from such related topics as talent management and workforce planning, describe a conceptual model to guide implementation, and summarize key trends and new thinking in succession planning.

Most organizations today are trying to get more work done at lower cost. One way to do that is to focus on individual productivity differences. According to research, some people are much more productive than other people. In fact, top performers may get as much as TWENTY TIMES the work results of average performers. How do they do that? The answer has to do with competencies. Competencies describe individuals who get results. This webinar will review competency modeling and describe what competencies are, how to identify them, and how to use them.
