Why Choose this Training Course?

Succession Planning is the process through which organisations identify and develop potential future leaders, senior managers or business critical positions. Approaches differ: some companies seek to identify potential by assessing young graduates to identify future leadership potential. Others recognise that people grow and develop according to their abilities and the opportunities which arise.
