Please join us on November 22 for a public workshop on Succession Planning: Developing and Managing a Smooth Organizational Transition.
Change is a hallmark of today’s business world. In particular, our workforce is constantly changing – people come and go, and move into new roles within the company. Succession planning can help you make the most of that change by ensuring that when someone leaves, there is someone new to take their place. This one-day course will help you teach the basics about creating and maintaining a succession plan.
At the end of this one-day workshop, participants will understand the value of succession planning, know the key elements of a succession plan, and develop a successful succession plan for their business.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
