Have you identified critical resources and areas of knowledge in your organization? Regardless of the size of your organization, age of the workforce, or industry you serve, key employees hold critical knowledge that if captured would mitigate risk. Is your organization’s handling of organizational knowledge in alignment with the new ISO9001 Standard?

Rethink and reexamine how you view and manage succession planning in today’s business environment. An organization should have a common understanding of what succession planning is, what it is not, to begin determining the organization’s “readiness” for succession planning. Expand your vision about what the word means, understanding that the process is a body of work where you will uncover hidden opportunities for process improvement.

In this session, we will explore the terminology of succession planning and management, the knowledge capture and transfer process and how to get started with your own succession planning strategy.

Join us for a C-Suite Breakfast Session as we delve into succession planning and share a case study of a privately held company, T&S Brass and Bronze Works, partnering with Clemson University to develop a roadmap and framework for a Succession Plan, including a knowledge capture and transfer method and process as well as a comprehensive leadership and change management program to build and secure the future of their company as well as ingrain the process within their unique company culture.
