    While 86% of executives say succession planning and development bench strength is important, only 32% of companies actually have succession plans in place.  In this session we will review the steps organizations can take to start the succession planning process and create development plans for growing and retaining their top talent.

    Participants will be able to:

    • use a methodology that allows them to create their talent risk profile.
    • work with senior leaders to identify key roles and leadership positions that should be part of a succession planning process

    • create development plans that meaningful and targeted to key talent
