DDBA 8581 - Succession Planning: A Survival Tool of the Fittest


(3 sem. cr.) In order to succeed in competitive environments, organizations must begin succession planning at the beginning of every initial interface—when an employee is added to the talent pool, when a leader is added to the knowledge capital, when the organization reviews its successes and its challenges, and when corporations plan “to plan.” The only sure way to do this well is to know where the gaps are in present-day resources and cast them repeatedly against future and emerging needs and trends facing the organization, then craft the strategies that will map the path for getting there. In this course, students are drawn into defining organizational capability using career mapping, opportunistic development, and technology to fulfill future strategic human and knowledge capital essential in optimizing organizational success.
