Board Succession Planning

Having a board leadership succession plan is just as important as a CEO succession plan. Boards are facing immense pressure from their stakeholders to not only deliver on business goals but to champion efforts on sustainability, diversity and inclusion, societal issues, and others. Ensuring seamless transitions in board leadership is critical to meeting these demands and to sustaining excellence.

In partnership with your board, we can develop a bespoke succession plan, considering the board's current composition and alignment to business strategy.

Our unparalleled experience with the world’s top-performing boards enables us to support your board succession planning. This should be an ongoing planning process to deliver a comprehensive and effective chair or committee chair transition, succession and onboarding protocol.
