About the Book

Organizations that don’t take steps to address future talent needs at all levels will face some major obstacles when undervalued key employees get burned out and leave you to fend for yourself.

Nobody likes to lose good employees. But sometimes the loss of a key employee can be disruptive to the business at best, and completely disastrous at worst. The most comprehensive book on the subject, the fifth edition of the bestselling Effective Succession Planning covers every base of how to address future talent needs before a crisis hits, including how to:

  • Identify competencies and clarify organizational values
  • Plan for and quickly fill crucial vacancies at all levels
  • Develop and retain top talent
  • Assess current needs and future resources for seamless succession planning

Updated with current best practices, trends, and technology, the latest edition also includes: succession planning for small businesses and nonprofits; replacement planning; transition management; downsizing; international issues; mergers and acquisitions as a talent strategy; and succession planning for technical positions as well as roles built on longstanding social relationships.

Don’t risk the loss of your most valued employees and their accumulated wisdom and experience that has been key to your company’s success for many years. Effective Succession Planning is your go-to indispensable guide for avoiding the catastrophe that losing them would bring.
