Succession Planning in Japanese: Developing Talent from Within

Course Summary

Ensure your organization always has well-trained, experienced people in key positions.

Research shows that most companies have little or no deliberate succession planning in place—and aren’t fully aware of how much the lack of it can cost their organization, especially in an unstable economy. Managing the succession of talent is a vital strategic process that minimizes gaps in leadership and enables your best people to develop the skills necessary for possible future roles.
This seminar will show you how to design and implement an effective and flexible succession plan that will help your organization continue to grow and achieve its business goals.
