Case Study: A community foundation plans for its future.

Succession Planning Case Study

We worked with a community foundation to implement a management continuity process for emergency and planned transitions at the CEO and senior leadership levels.

First, we identified the critical functions required to cover the positions and who in the foundation could temporarily manage those functions. Next, we established a process for the CEO’s departure and the step-by-step plan that the board could test before actually putting the plan into action.

For the next two years, the board relied on this process and felt they were prepared and confident that they would be able to manage the transition and executive search when the CEO announced his retirement.
