This diagram illustrates the way succession planning, talent management and succession management relate to one another according to our definitions. Succession activity can be envisaged as a continuum, based on whether there is more of a focus on development or more of a focus on role definition and assessment for roles. Activity in the continuum ranges from staff development, through talent management and succession planning, to role definition or competency frameworks.
Surrounding the continuum are the processes that need to support succession planning and talent management. The more robust these are, the greater the likelihood that the organisation will be able to operate a successful scheme in the middle of the continuum, with both role definition and development.
