What's Transition Strategy Management all about?

The Transition Strategy Management conversation is about creating a plan for how your team will manage the nuts and bolts of the transition process itself. The purpose of this conversation is to answer the following questions:

  • Which transition process will best facilitate our transition?
  • How will we help our leaders process the personal aspect of transition?
  • Who are the key teams, both formal and informal, with whom we need to communicate?
  • How will we manage the search process?
  • What can we do to help onboard the successor?
  • What can we do to honor and celebrate the impact of the leader who is transitioning?
