To properly plan for succession, managers must be aware of talent pool criteria and employee aspirations for development within the organization. Use the Talent Profile Guide to:
- Document the potential successor's current position(s).
- Assess where they stand against talent pool criteria.
- Document their aspirations.
- Assess and record flight risk.
To successfully place candidates, the manager must have all of the above information readily accessible leading to more robust talent pools for succession planning.
