People Succession

Lessons from Forward Thinking Executives in Middle-Market Companies

Authored by Carol P Bergeron
Edition: First

This book is a must read for executives, the board of directors, and people managers in middle-market and aspiring middle-market companies who want to proactively reduce workforce risks so that business goals can be achieved.

This succinct read is tailored to today's busy business leaders and:

* Starts with 3 scenarios of an organization with a promising path for growth. The first scenario assumes business strategy execution without incident. The second scenario shows the economic dip over a 5 year period resulting from the unexpected departure of a key executive. The third scenario shows how the initial loss of the key executive snowballs into dramatically disappointing organizational results over a 5 year horizon.

* Is loaded with first-hand experiences shared by 25+ executives in middle-market companies interviewed for the book who currently do succession planning and reap its many benefits (i.e. peer learning in print).

* Provides a road map of the 7 steps involved in the people succession process in addition to time saving tips.

* Identifies the top 9 derailers to people succession and how to address them.

* Reveals sensible approaches used by busy executives when preparing people for future responsibilities.

* The book explains why companies that rely too heavily on recruiting from the external candidate pool put business strategy execution at risk.

* Speaks to CEO succession, board issues, and the monitoring of key performance indicators for determining if your people succession works.
