A key to tackling the talent war in the health sector is strategic planning for succession. At any given time, a senior member of your team could resign or suffer an unexpected health emergency. The only way to move forward without major organizational disruption is through planning for such occurrences. In this assessment, you will gain experience benchmarking succession planning strategies based on current trends.
Assume your highest performing tenured manager of a 20-person department unexpectedly submitted her 2 weeks’ notice. Your next most tenured employee in the department has only 2 years of experience and is not ready to assume the position at this time. Additionally, there is a major health care organization in your area that seems to have the first pick when recruiting the talent you really need. The executive team for your organization has asked you to address this situation.
