Succession planning

From Our Toolkit

Succession planning is about looking at where your group is now, where it needs to go and what you can do to get there. It is about putting a system in place to ensure that when someone leaves you are not left with a black hole of knowledge and expertise – and that there is someone in the wings ready to step into the that role.

Supporting Communities

CyMAL’s Succession Planning Framework and an action planning template for museums and archives  to help support organisations to review what roles and skills are essential and what areas of knowledge are vital for your organisation to continue to operate.  

Supporting Communities’s Making a Succession Plan and the Council for British Archaeology’s Succession Planning for Small Community Groups are also useful resources.
