Popular literature is resplendent with articles on the importance of succession planning. However, specific measures of the real impact of succession planning on organizations do not appear to exist. This research has explored succession planning by first developing a working definition and then a related set of seven indicators, or constructs, which can be used for further theory building. These indicators are: (1) The ability to identify new leaders. (2) The ability to develop new leaders. (3) The ability to deliver financial success. (4) The ability to foster a positive organizational culture. (5) The ability to maintain long-term viability. The ability to sustain core competencies. (6) The ability to initiate change management.
