You’ve got a succession plan, right?

Or at least a strategy?

You’ve identified those critical roles in your organization that need backup?

And you’re grooming leaders to fill them?

You’ve identified what’s required for those positions, the scope and responsibilities, so that you know what you’re looking for and who to consider elevating?  And you’ve considered if you need to look outside your current team and organization?

And you’ve factored in the runway and ramp up time necessary so that it’s not a fire drill to prepare someone and get them acclimated, thereby ensuring that the baton is passed without missing a beat?
