Succession & Talent Management Readiness Assessment
Succession planning and talent management is a systematic method of identifying and developing high-potential employees. As a system, there are sequential steps or processes important in managing vital information about needs, activities and progress. A well-designed talent management system effectively links to other systems such as selection and hiring and performance management.
The PLS Consulting Talent Management and Succession Planning Readiness Assessment is designed to identify potential impediments to success when implementing or improving a talent management and succession planning system.
The assessment consists of a series of statements aligned to best practices for building and implementing a talent management and succession planning system. Respondents score each statement on their level of occurrence, from “not at all true” to “absolutely true.”
Based on the responses, PLS assigns a readiness score ranging from “significant challenges” to “superior readiness.”
The Talent Management and Succession Planning Readiness report shows each statement and how it was scored. Based on the specific responses, PLS provides a detailed report listing potential pitfalls, gaps in readiness, and best practice recommendations to implement in the program design. PLS Consulting has developed a facilitated process that provides information for closing the gaps and designing the strongest program possible.
The Talent Management and Succession Planning Readiness report categorizes each statement response in one of three categories: leadership, Human Resources, and systems. Our experience shows that these three categories are the main drivers of program success (or failure). The Talent Management and Succession Planning Readiness report provides an overview the responsibilities of category, and lists specific program recommendations for each based on the assessment results.
