Succession Planning and Management: A Guide to Organizational Systems and Practices
Berke, David
Center for Creative Leadership (NJ3)
The purpose of succession-related practices is to ensure that there are ready replacements for key positions in an organization so that turnover will not negatively affect the organization's performance. CCL first published an annotated bibliography on succession planning in 1995. That bibliography focused primarily on the link between succession and management development. This bibliography has a broader scope; it is an update and expansion, commensurate with the maturation of this area of practice. In addition to linkages between succession and development, we also consider representative literature on CEO succession, high potentials, and succession systems and architecture. It is hoped that those who use this bibliography will find resources that help them in conceptualizing, planning, and implementing effective succession systems in their organizations. Following the Preface, and Introduction, this book consists of the following four chapters: (1) CEO Succession; (2) Development; (3) High Potentials; and (4) Succession Systems and Architecture. The book concludes with an Author Index, and a Title Index.
