Most organizations consider people to be their most valuable asset. SAP SuccessFactors Succession Planning is an essential tool to ensure your organization is positioning itself for the future. Global impacts, a race for talent, constantly changing technology and business goals all make Succession Planning a significant part of the value HR brings to the business. Organizations without rigorous succession planning risk a leadership vacuum, along with an inability to ensure the business has the skilled staff necessary to meet its goals.

One Client’s Story

This client knew it was struggling. It had succession plans in place for senior leadership, but the process was disjointed. It wasn’t able to look across the businesses and identify high potential employees – or begin to develop and document the training and experiences needed to ensure there was a good bench strength of talent.

The business wanted to reach further down the organization, even to the manager level, which meant the manual spreadsheets and presentations HR was using for executive succession planning could not be scaled to support a broader succession group.

After evaluating the organization’s current steps for succession planning for executives, 3D Results knew we could use the succession planning tools within SAP SuccessFactors system to develop a new process that could be used across leadership in the organization.

This new set of processes and tools:

  • Outlined how HR could better prepare the businesses for evaluating talent
  • Helped managers understand and use evaluation criteria for things like high potential and risk of loss
  • Provided documentation of plans for development and experience opportunities
  • Created reports that supported automated data that could be used at all levels of the business
  • Initiated Talent Summits that rolled up from the managers to the CEO
  • Ensured year over year accountability for following plans and seeing that key employees receive the development and experience they need

This client worked hard to ensure the new succession process was automated so it could be used across their company, and that it contained all the necessary constructs to fully evaluate, develop, and support the success of their developing leaders.
