Sample Readiness and Succession Charts

In brief: These sample readiness and succession charts originally appeared in NACD’s 2013 Report of the NACD Blue Ribbon Commission on Talent Development: A Boardroom Imperative. Two charts are included: 1) a readiness/bench chart to show bench strengths for direct reports to various C-suite officers and 2) a current incumbent organization chart to show the strength of current leaders.

This resource can help your board to

  • Measure the bench strength of the current talent
  • Determine potential successors to C-suite positions from within or outside the organization

Most relevant audiences: CHRO, CEO, management development committee members
