SFHA Senior Staff Succession Planning Guidance
SFHA's Senior Staff Succession Planning guidance is now available to all SFHA members.
This guidance, originally published in 2019, has been updated with input from a group of SFHA members. The revisions were drafted by Linda Ewart on behalf of SFHA.
This guidance is provided to SFHA members as a helpful guide for staff and governing bodies to refer to when they are considering their succession planning for senior staff. It looks at understanding future intentions; considerations when the Senior officer is leaving/will be absent; and managing in the interim should the unexpected happen. Whilst it is not a guide to business planning, it also touches on the links between succession planning and the business planning process.
