Does my company need a succession plan?
Every business owner with a successful, profitable company needs a succession plan. A succession plan is a necessary step for ensuring that your
business continues to thrive even in the event of loss of leadership. A succession plan can help you prepare for the future, avoid miscommunication,
and make sure that your company upholds the values and goals that were set when it first began. If you are concerned with how your business
would be impacted by an untimely illness or death, formulate and implement a succession plan.
When should I create a succession plan?
You can create a succession plan at any time, but it is generally a good idea to write one as soon as possible. Succession plans are primarily
used to lessen the negative consequences of unexpected events, so the earlier you write them, the more beneficial they can be.
When drafting a plan, many organizations allow for two categories of events: death/accident and retirement. Death/accident plans are reserved for
worst-case scenarios and should be finalized well-before they are needed. Retirement succession plans are usually executed gradually over a
long period of time and often focus on a predetermined date, set several years in the future.
