Resource Description:

The stakes of CEO evaluation and succession are high. Executive leadership is integral to the prosperity of any corporation. The right CEO and team can inspire a lackluster organization to greater achievements, while mediocre leadership is lucky to maintain the status quo.


Because the core principles of CEO evaluation and succession are in many ways interrelated, we have constructed this handbook as a series of modules. The first two modules focus on process: Module One contains an overview of the performance evaluation and Module Two discusses CEO succession planning. Module Three looks at the major players—specifically the roles of the board and management in evaluation and succession. The final modules address the action steps: selection and compensation of the next CEO in Module Four, and the transition and assimilation of the new CEO in Module Five.
