How To Workout a Succession Planning in The Workplace
Why do you exercise?To look good, perhaps, or maybe to lose weight; but, ultimately, to live a longer, healthier life. Exercise is to the body what succession planning is to a business.

You may take a good hard look at yourself occasionally and think, “I could be better.” So, you do a couple push-ups, decide it’s kind of late, and you plan to get up early tomorrow morning to start an exercise routine that you’re going to maintain for the rest of your life. But you don’t. You keep planning on it. That’s exactly what planning is: not doing.
