Abstract

Faced with rising numbers of employees due for retirement and dwindling numbers of younger workers stepping up to replace them, forward‐thinking companies are implementing succession plans for senior management. Such schemes can help create a culture of learning and development at all levels and can also build a structural developmental process for top managers and provide practical tools for employee advancement.
