Career Planning and Succession Management : Developing Your Organization's Talent-for Today and Tomorrow, 2nd Edition Hardback



This timely guide explains how businesses can effectively integrate and coordinate career and succession planning programs to meet the personnel demands of the future. Drawing on their experience and expertise with workforce development, the authors of this book based its content on a single but important premise.

With global economic instability, a slowdown in workforce growth, extraordinary competition for the best talent, and the rapid advance of technology, there is an immediate need to integrate career and succession planning programs.

Explaining how to do just that, this practical, user-friendly guide is the first to link those critical business tools, showing readers how to prepare for tomorrow-and the many years after. The book presents a systematic approach through which businesses can integrate and coordinate career planning and succession planning programs.

Part One makes the business case for moving beyond segregated career and succession planning and shows why they must be integrated.

Part Two offers foundations for integration, while Part Three outlines the strategies that can make integration a reality.

Part Four addresses the future of career development and succession planning.

Other topics include the future of organizational infrastructure and the implications of a diverse workforce.

Employee engagement and leadership development are also explored. Examines career development in a much broader manner than is traditionally the case by focusing on both the personal and professional development planning needs of employeesDemonstrates how employees who are given tools and organizational guidance necessary to plan their development will usually be more successful in meeting their career aspirationsExpands on the organization's role in establishing career development programs to answer the question of who is responsible-the organization, the employee, or bothIncludes cutting-edge research by leading consulting firms such as BlessingWhite, Manpower Group, and DDI Offers content that will be equally valuable to students, practitioners, and academicians
