Succession Management Program 2020

The Succession Management Program consists of three workshops and three one-on-one consulting sessions designed to teach participants how to complete a succession plan for their organization. Under the direction of the Executive Sponsor the participant will lead a project team within their respective organizations to develop their succession plan over the four month period. Upon workshop completion, participating organizations will have a completed succession plan that meets CalHR’s policy requirements. The program also includes a Graduation ceremony for Executive Sponsors and Participants.


  • A dedicated owner(s) and/or team is established and approved to allocate up to 60% of their time to carry out the development and implementation of the succession plan.
  • An Executive Sponsor is committed to support and allocate resources to the succession management effort.
  • Participant(s) has access to organization’s workforce data such as turnover and employee demographics.
