What is Succession Planning?
In order for key roles to be be filled within a company, an organization needs to ensure that the right employees are trained and recruited.
Through the right succession planning process, you recruit superior employees, develop their knowledge, skills, and abilities, and prepare them for advancement or promotion into ever more challenging roles in your organization.
Proper succession planning ensures that employees are constantly developed to fill each needed role in your organization.
Your succession planning guarantees that you have employees ready to fill new roles as your organization expands, loses key employees, and provides promotional job opportunities.
Do you need Succession Planning?
No matter the size of the organization, you need succession planning and even if you are a smaller organization that may not be able to have a potential successor for every role in your company, you can minimally cross-train in order to keep your organization's mission on track if a key employee leaves.

What can we do for you?
Ken Bratz Consulting provides services in the development and management of succession plans. We can provide the process for creating the plan and also the development of the process.
Several instruments are used to determine the need, including a competency process that is easy, quick, as well as effective. Because there are a great number of variables and approaches to succession planning, an intensive interview process to establish a plan and a direction are completed first. This information is provided to a succession team that develops the plan and the fulfillment of the plan.
Mentoring is included as a part of succession planning in many instances. Ken Bratz Consulting has developed a course designed to assist organizations in the mentoring process. The course is interactive and provides the mentor and the person being mentored with a process to use as they prepare their plan. A framework for an Individual Development Plan is provided along with a Career Planning process.
