"When developing candidates for succession, to what extent does your organization use these practices and to what extent do you think your organization should use these practices?"
The Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) and the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) asked this question, among others, in a recent study on succession planning. The full results are examined in the ASTD/i4cp report Improving Succession Plans: Harnessing the Power of Learning and Development. An interactive chart highlighting data collected for the report is available below.
Use the checkboxes and radio buttons to filter the results based on your company size. For instance, as expected, more large companies (10,000 employees and above) utilize succession planning, but the gaps between high-performance organizations and lower performing ones are also much greater.
