Succession planning has not been a distinct initiative undertaken by educational organisation in their strategic planning. The former has been clearly established in several high profile profit organisations to ensure smooth transition of leadership in their respective department. From several literatures, proponents of strategic planning have called for non-profit organisations to seriously consider succession planning as an indispensable initiative. This is because it promotes a clear vision of shared values, personnel efficiency and effectiveness and institutional credibility. Therefore, it has to be undertaken by the educational organisation as it promotes positive outlook within. Subsequently, it acts to provide motivational booster for the workers as in talent pooling, customers' satisfaction due to institutional effectiveness and the organisation competent management at large. This paper explores the importance of succession planning on the sustainability of the educational organisation. It also attempts to put into perspective how succession planning transcends these effects on the performance of academicians, students and the organisation stability.
