Organizations today recognize that people can drive a business forward or backward. Training plays a key role in remaining competitive in a global economy. Succession management is any effort designed to ensure the continued effective performance of an organization, division, department or work group by making provision for the development, replacement and strategic application of key people over time. As input to the succession management system, an organization usually identifies its existing competences related to its leadership needs. Mentoring provides a structured system for strengthening and assuring continuity of organizational culture. This can be crucial at times of leadership succession, as leadership changes often require redefinition or modification of culture. Succession planning and mentoring are worthwhile processes that can develop the longevity and relevance of businesses and organizations. This workshop is therefore designed to equip participants with succession planning and mentoring management skills.
