The loss of valuable leadership can cripple a company. Business succession planning is essentially preparing successors to take on vital leadership roles when the need arises. It is essential to the long-term survival of a company. Every company should have a form of succession planning in its portfolio, and it is not the expected absences that can cripple a company, but the unexpected ones.

Whether it is preparing someone to take over a position of leadership in a corporation, or the sole proprietor of a small business, Business Succession Planning will teach you the difference between succession planning and mere replacement planning.
