Where Is Your Nonprofit with Succession Planning?

Came across a Twitter tweet today from Hildy Gottlieb. Dusting off an “old” article, which is every bit as relevant today as it was in 2006 when it was published by Creating the Future: http://bit.ly/PS1CD1. Nonprofit boards must get intentional and purposeful about “who’s next” for them: When the time comes, how will they find the right replacement for their CEO? This is every bit as important as the strategic plan. After all, it is about future direction. Knowing the What and the How of the Plan are good. Knowing the Who as in “Who’s next?” can’t be neglected. I was checking out http://www.bridgespan.org which has published in this area, and has convened thought leaders in the field to help nonprofits strategize around leadership succession. Their site is worth some exploration.
