Succession Planning Scenarios

Use

This function enables you to prepare and work your way through succession planning scenarios. Succession planning sets out to ensure that there is a continuous supply of qualified personnel.

Succession planning scenarios focus on the posts in a company that need to be filled (or will need to be filled in the future) because existing posts have become vacant or new posts have been created. In Succession Planning, you select suitable potential successors for these posts. You also prepare these successors specifically for these posts so that they can be transferred immediately if a vacancy arises.

In succession planning, you can also look for persons, applicants, etc. that match the profiles of activity-related objects.

The criterion Include career is only useful when carrying out succession planning for positions.
