Harvard Business Review, in a 2009 issue, cited a survey wherein companies rated their succession planning as a C+ and their execution of those plans with a D grade. In other words, most companies can develop a hiring process, but they have not thought through the entire process of preparing the organization for the change of leaders. Even worse, they have not prepared the leader for entry into the system.
