In healthcare, effective succession planning is a leadership imperative. Yet what is the definition of effective? How are the results of a succession-planning program being evaluated? Which metrics are most meaningful to executive champions? Many metrics are suggested to measure the effectiveness of succession planning, such as pipeline population numbers, percentage “ready-now,” and “time to fill.” However these measures often fall short in resonating with leadership. The key is to connect measures to strategic business outcomes. This is possible by applying the Rothwell Model, which continues as the framework of webcast 5 in this five-part series.
In this webcast, we will:
- Examine the Rothwell Model and step 7: Evaluate program results.
- Explore how to communicate succession program effectiveness.
- Review benchmarked measurement practices for succession planning.
- Discuss a real-world case study in healthcare.
