Mapping Out Successful Board Succession

Date: January 21, 2016
Time: 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Succession planning processes are key to organizational success, but both executive and board succession often seem to receive less than optimal focus on the board agenda. At the CEO level, a lack of careful consideration of the future skills, knowledge and expertise required to drive a strategy can jeopardize an organization’s ability to execute.

Similarly, without due consideration of future strategy and the skills, knowledge and expertise required to provide oversight, the board’s ability to effectively play its fiduciary role is put at risk. In fact, investors are increasingly asking for more details around skillsets at the board level.

Join Equilar and Hay Group for an interactive webinar as we discuss how to improve your board succession planning process to make your board a strategic asset.

Webinar topics include:

  • The latest data showing how companies communicate executive and board succession plans to shareholders

  • Different types of succession planning: emergency, planned retirement, strategically driven

  • The costs of unplanned board transitions

  • How to develop an ongoing process for board assessment and refreshment

  • How to address the emotional barriers that can derail strategic succession planning

  • Hay Group’s Board Life CycleSM as help to establish a forward-thinking approach to board succession
