Topic 2: Succession Planning:

Succession planning is about filling the organization’s talent pipeline and building internal bench strength. It is about leveraging the talent that the organization already possesses by developing it to full potential. But how is succession planning different from replacement planning, talent management, and succession management? What model summarizes the essential elements of a succession planning program? Rothwell & Associates, LLC, can address these questions. We provide our clients with simple, yet effective tools to facilitate replacement planning and succession planning. 

Topic 3: Competency Modeling:


Competency efforts have evolved from an early focus on distinctions between best-in-class (exemplary) and fully-successful performers to become a link between organisational strategy and organisational and individual performance. Interest in competency-based approaches is growing. As a thought leader in competency modeling, Rothwell & Associates, LLC is committed to helping organizations meet their human resource needs. R&A utilizes competency models to clarify organisation-specific competencies to improve human performance and unify individual capabilities with organisational core competencies.
