How it works

Once the positions to be planned for are determined and documented, criteria for selection and a list of potential successors for each role can be determined. Leaders develop profiles to compare candidates, and then look into their organizations and identify the employees with the potential to rise to the next level (or more) and access basic demographic and developmental information on each.
