Succession planning is not about moving people into management but it is about creating tracks that help people develop the skills and attributes that get them to the next level of their careers while benefiting the company in the long term. Effective succession planning provides the following advantages to a company:
  • Improve employee commitment and retention
  • Meet the career development expectations of existing employees
  • Counter the increasing difficulty and costs of recruiting employees externally
(Source: Forbes; Wikipedia)

Although succession planning is important to ensure continuity of key functions in a company, surveys done in year 2017 have shown lack of such practice in Malaysian companies, particularly small medium enterprises (SMEs):
  • 31% of Malaysian family businesses have no succession plan in place
  • 62% of Malaysian family businesses identify succession planning as a key challenge in the next five years
  • 41% of respondents did not know how to plan for succession
(Source: PricewaterhouseCoopers; Universiti Tun Abdul Razak)
