Boise I CEO Succession Planning

January 31, 2017
Boise, ID


Directors must ensure that a rigorous CEO succession process that produces optimal results is in place in their enterprise.  Evaluating succession candidates for crucial capabilities such as hard-wired traits and motivation that align with the job is very challenging.  These capabilities are not readily apparent in a resume or even during in-depth interviews.  This session will equip you with a knowledge of best practices for better assessing the capabilities of your bench relative to strategy, and planning for the future.

Topics Include:

  • Timing for Boards to begin the succession planning process
  • Choosing between internal and external CEO candidates
  • Predictors of CEO success
  • Grooming inside candidates
  • Tips on the selection process, including interviews, use of consultants, and other assessment tools
  • Facilitating a smooth transition process for the new CEO
