CAE : Do you Have A Succession Plan ?
As a CAE , you know that one day you will leave your position to either " pursue other interests", retire or be absent due to " natural causes" ! When you audited the HR function in your organization, you have most probably included the organization's succession planning as part of that audit . If there was no succession plan ,you most probably have recommended one. Now ,let's see if you practice what you preach ! Do you have a succession plan for your Internal Audit Activity ? If your answer is yes ,you may stop reading this post ! If it is no, keep reading !
Be Proactive and Initiate the Process !
If their is no succession plan for your IA activity ,be proactive and start the process yourself . This is how you may start :
•Discuss your proposal to adopt succession planning with your stakeholders ( audit committee , CEO, HR,..etc ) and seek their support and commitment . Once this is done, talk to your staff and explain the importance of having a succession plan .
•Identify which positions need to be included in the plan ( CAE ,Director ,Manager ..etc)
•Identify the required competencies.
•Assess internal candidates ( talents) and determine if outside candidates need to be recruited .
•Select and train the successors and keep them engaged at all times !
•I also like the idea of putting the successors through what is called "stress tests" to ensure their preparedness.
•Monitor and update the plan on timely basis .
