Building Leaderful Organizations: Succession Planning for Nonprofits

Released as part of an Annie E. Casey Foundation series on executive transitions, Building Leaderful Organizations: Succession Planning for Nonprofits (23 pages, PDF) provides tools for emergency succession planning, guidance for executive directors about when and how to leave an organization, and a list of recommendations for boards working to maintain an organization's stability through a period of transition. According to the report, an organization that pays close attention to talent-focused succession planning is likely to be more nimble, flexible, and capable of building the skills and capacity needed to meet challenges that may arise.
