Succession Planning

One of the most important and difficult tasks a board can face is guiding a senior leadership transition. The buck truly does stop with the board when it comes to a changing of the guard at the CEO, Artistic or Managing Director level – when the future of your organization may well rest on a successful conclusion to your search and hiring. This is especially fraught when it involves the replacement of a long-time leader, but can be thorny and challenging no matter who’s moving on.

We've compiled a series of articles, reports and resources for you and your board to explore. Click any of the links below, or access a roll-up of all the resources in one easy-to-print document. Click here to access the document: Succession Planning: Navigating a Leadership Transition (PDF).
