Pathetic succession management is the number three reason why companies fail. Having a contingency plan if your CEO were to be hit by a bus is not enough. With today's buyouts, bailouts, and bankruptcies, is your succession plan bullet proof? The investment community, business portfolio managers, boards and senior executives expect more than an emergency succession plan. They want a contemporary plan including quantitative talent information in order to mitigate company risk and ensure business continuity through strong leadership. This webcast will address the requirements and tools for contemporary succession management. A case study of a mid-western energy trading company will be featured; you'll gain insight about how to apply contemporary principles of successful management to cover your company's "ass-ets" through any economy.
