This chapter presents some of the issues and considerations for effective succession planning and management (SPM) interventions. It explores the uncertain nature of succession itself and research and practice-based evidence about key decisions involved in designing, implementing, and evaluating SPM programs; including the selection decisions, development strategies, and transitions. Next, the relationship of SPM programs with other workforce capacity solutions is examined, and some strengths and weaknesses of SPM initiatives are discussed. The chapter closes by providing a step-by-step heuristic to use as a basis when designing an SPM program and critical factors for success.
