Have you considered business succession planning for your organization? Because if not, it’s high time you do. Formal succession planning needs your company to:
- Recognize the positions highly critical for the company’s future success. These, however, might not all be C-suite positions.
- Go through the internal candidates who come with the skills and values willing to take up the critical jobs.
- You should be able to have a conversation with potential candidates about their career paths and what their interests are.
Also, in case there aren’t any internal candidates right for the leadership position, then you’ve got the liberty to avail external search as well. SWAT will help you recognize those with potential. Our team with each dedicated Succession Planning Attorney is going to handle for you the ins and outs of choosing the one you want to pass the torch to!

- Should internal hiring come into view and become of high importance, who would be best suited to take over the responsibilities?
Are they within the reach of the role? Considering that they need training, ask yourself, what type?
- While it’s very natural to look ahead of the line and consider the next person as the default successor, it’s really vital to broaden your view! Isn’t it? At least that’s what our team believes!

It’s essential to never overlook other promising team members! We should remember that potential often lies beyond an organization chart.
In private, discuss with people in the organization that they’re singled out for positions that might need to be filled in quite a while later. Do let them know about the positioning of the company and that there could be different unforeseen situations.
You probably have been already investing in the career development of those who you know are great succession choices. But, preparation now needs to be ramped up! Think about Job rotation this time. It is a very good way to help candidates gain extensive knowledge and expertise
Your business is an investment that you should probably think about monetising before leaving the business. That’s why planning the succession earlier is very essential!
