Success at the Top: CEO Evaluation and Succession

By NACD Staff


Chair Evaluation Director’s Handbook CEO Succession

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 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.
