This paper posits that an organization's roster of managers slated to attend, or who have attended, an executive development program can be used as the starting point for: developing an organizational talent profile, and facilitating the initiation of, or re‐invigoration of, an entity's strategic succession planning process.
This paper is the culmination of over 40 years of working with corporations in the arena of talent development.
A practical, guiding framework for identifying the best candidates for succession planning purposes and tailoring their further professional development agendas is presented and discussed.
The approach, framework, and related benefits presented here are immediately and broadly applicable.

Moreover, it invites companies to leverage their executive education program rosters as a starting point for identifying the best possible succession planning cohort.
