Eastman, Lorrina J.
Succession planning assures the continuity of an organization's leadership by developing candidates for key management positions. This report provides: (1) a summary of selected works on succession planning for positions in middle to upper management; (2) a general understanding of the nature and extent of succession planning for human resources managers and executives; and (3) practical literature on succession planning. Each article in the report either provides practical suggestions for succession planning for a broad range of management positions, or focuses on the developmental component of succession planning. The report consists of two sections; the first contains an annotated bibliography, which summarizes 56 articles and books on succession planning. The second section describes 11 themes which organize the commonly reported practices in succession planning. (SR)
