Getting Buy-In From Your Senior Management Team

Many leaders understand the importance of succession planning to the long-term success of their organization, but most companies do not have a solid succession plan. Consequently, it can be difficult to convince a senior management team to focus their time and resources toward succession planning. The following workbook will provide you with the information you need to get buy-in from your management team.

Use this workbook to sell succession planning to your senior leadership team. With the help of our simple templates, consider:

  • Why succession planning is important to your organization
  • Your current succession planning process
  • The structure of your company
  • The strength of your current candidates

For form fill-able versions of these worksheets, visit our Succession Planning template library.

Once you’ve gained buy-in from your senior management team, check out our helpful Succession Planning checklist to assess the maturity of your current succession planning process. Next, try our At-A-Glance Succession Bench activity to get a quick sense of how well your company has succession planned for critical roles.
