How Is Your Succession Planning Strategy Working [free report]

by Sharlyn Lauby on August 15, 2013

During the SHRM Annual Conference, I spent some time with my friends at Halogen Software. They shared with me a new online report they’re offering and I thought you might want to check it out.

It’s on succession planning. We all know how important succession planning efforts are to our organizations. But we don’t always get a chance to compare our efforts to existing best practices. Halogen is giving you the chance to find out how your efforts stack up.

First of all, I really liked their approach. This isn’t an exercise in who is replacing whom within the company. It’s about ensuring the continued effective performance of the organization. We all know there’s a difference, right? Halogen teamed up with succession planning experts Rothwell & Associates to bring you a comprehensive assessment to help you evaluate your strategies.

The assessment isn’t too labor intensive. Using a 5-point scale, just answer 20 questions about how your organization is performing within key criteria. It asks about topics such as development plans, peer-based learning, talent reviews, competency models and much more.

After completing the survey, you’ll receive a report that not only scores your progress but offers some suggestions to take your succession planning efforts to the next level.

If you’re looking to get some feedback and ideas on your succession plan, this is a good option. It’s quick and produces a nice report. Hope you’ll check it out.
