Prior to designing your succession planning program, have key stakeholders and goals in place to set the program up for success from the start. Use the Succession Planning Program Charter Template to:
- Document the program sponsor and steering committee members
- Determine the need for succession planning and the goals and metrics of the program
- Identify target transparency levels
- Outline stakeholder roles
Use this template to communicate the reasons for designing a succession plan and organize the people necessary to run the program.
