Respond to the following:
What does succession planning entail and what are its essential steps?
Are there any disadvantages to using a nine-box grid for succession planning? Would you have any difficulty in categorizing anyone who reports or has reported to you into one of the boxes? If you never managed a team, think about employees you have worked with in the past and how you would categorize them.
Do you think most people frequently move from one box to another or do most people tend to stay in one box for long periods of their careers?
