Succession Management

The thought of your leaders leaving your organization can be difficult to face. However, good succession management is the beginning of a journey toward a new generation of leadership within your business. The right talent in the right place will spur innovation, mitigate risk, and propel your team.

At Optimum Talent, we take an evidence-based approach to Succession Management. We use objective data obtained from SuccessFinder, an assessment tool that shows where a leader could be placed within an organization. Through SuccessFinder, you don’t have to rely on the instinct of a supervisor or the performance of a candidate.

We’ll help you choose the right leader, develop any competencies they lack and position them and your organization for success.

The best time to start succession management was yesterday. The second-best time is now.

At Optimum Talent we understand your challenges related to succession management. We understand that it requires a thoughtful, unbiased approach to help safeguard your organization against operational risk and position your business for success. Regardless of where your organization is in the process, our team of experienced succession advisers will add value. If you’ve already started the process, but are feeling overwhelmed, we can pick up where you are. You’ll still benefit from the work you’ve done, but will gain Optimum Talent’s rigorous and unbiased method going forward. Or if you haven’t started the succession process or want to adjust your approach, we can begin from our blueprint stage and take you through our entire multi-dimensional approach.

Our Approach


We define, prioritize, scope, decide, and plan.


We measure the leaders’ traits, competencies, and probability of success in various roles. When finished, we’ve identified high-potential leaders, their strengths, and development needs.


 During our development phase, we use the 70:20:10 model, which holds that individuals obtain 70% of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20% from interactions with others, and 10% from formal educational events.


Once leaders have been identified and developed, we advise on how to deploy them to maximize your business success and retain your talent.
