In one of the many succession planning presentations I have delivered across the world, I was recently asked, "What is the future of succession planning?" My answer focused on four changes that I see happening: • a move from succession planning designed to meet promotion needs to one that meets knowledge transfer needs • a greater reliance on retirees • a transition from focusing on strategic succession to tactical, daily succession • an increase in the integration of succession planning and career development. This article addresses these four issues in detail, emphasizing the role of workplace learning and performance professionals in helping their organizations meet these challenges.
