Emergency Succession Planning
Emergency Succession Planning – A thoughtfully prepared plan to address an unanticipated
departure of an Executive Director, usually occurring with only a few days or weeks notice.
Emergency succession plans ensures the uninterrupted performance of essential executive functions
by outlining steps for the temporary appointment of an acting Executive Director.
Strategic Leadership Planning – An ongoing process that identifies the core competencies, skills
and knowledge needed by your organization in the next five years along with a plan to develop those
competencies in your existing talent or recruit new talent from outside the organization.
Departure Defined Transition Planning – A course of action that board members and Executive
Directors can employ when an executive begins thinking about leaving an organization. Departure
defined transition planning focuses on communicating the transition to staff and stakeholders,
conducting an organizational assessment, building organizational capacity and sustainability,
recruiting and hiring a new executive, and celebrating the transition.
It is important to note that each component of the succession planning process informs the others. The
