Succession Planning: Keeping the Knowledge on Your Team


Are you ready to keep things running if your top manager or operator left tomorrow?

Join Neal Bolton and Kasem Cornelius to learn how to develop and implement an effective succession plan at your organization to keep operations up-and-running, including: knowledge transfer and transition planning, system and materials development, training and mentor programs, scheduling, and rollout.

In this webcast, we’ll walk step-by-step through how to develop and implement an effective succession plan from a waste management perspective. We’ll start with a look at the typical succession and knowledge gap issues, and how you can identify these before they become a problem. Bolton and Cornelius will then outline the key considerations, elements, and steps (e.g., knowledge transfer, training, mentoring, etc.) of a successful succession plan. Within this discussion, we’ll explore effective knowledge transfer techniques (e.g., cross-training, shadowing, etc.), and when, where, and why to use each. We’ll discuss how to design and implement reliable performance manuals and facility procedures (e.g., safety, operations, emergency response, equipment, etc.). And we’ll explore how to develop and document your training and mentoring programs, including: participant and format selection, materials, and ongoing agreements. Additionally, Bolton and Cornelius will outline how to create a development, implementation, and transition schedule, and address how to set and assess succession performance goals and KPIs. Finally, throughout the discussion, we’ll take a look at succession planning in action in the field with real-world case studies of how to do it right (and wrong).

Whether you have senior management eyeing retirement or operators looking for their next move…this webinar will help you prepare for the transition and keep all systems go.
