Vice President of Talent and Organization & Management Development, PepsiCo, Inc.
Successful succession planning can make or break an organization based on two factors: managing risk, and the creation of organizational continuity to maintain their workforce plan. When pivotal positions go vacant in an organization, the effect on organizational operations can be devastating if there is no real system in place to maintain success. In a post-recession economy, the succession plan must align with the strategic workforce plan, and be both agile and responsive to future talent needs.
