Succession Planning

Succession is one of the most complex and daunting of organizational transitions. Handing over the keys to the kingdom is fraught with psychological undercurrents and power plays. It is never a linear process and requires careful long-term planning and forethought.

A robust succession process increases the retention of top talent and ensures business continuity.  This in turn reassures investors, clients and employees in the business’ viability and growth potential.
