Succession Planning

Succession, Replacement, and Career Planning
In June 2017, our Board of Trustees approved our University’s strategic plan: “FAMU RISING” 2017-2022. A critical success factor in implementation is assuring a pipeline of talent to focus on work most critical to the success of our great institution. As such, we have developed an inclusive process for talent management of our staff employees that will assure deliberate planning in the identification of critical positions within our organization and developing action plans for individuals to assume those positions; for both the short and long term.

Taking a holistic view of our strategic plan, its goals, and priorities through this type of preparation ensures that we will have the right talent in the right jobs today and in the years to come.

In the long term, succession planning, underpinned by career development will support effective replacement planning (short term) and transition planning (longer-term) of personnel throughout all levels of the University, thereby strengthening continuity and the overall capability of Florida A&M University.

Succession planning will identify current and future staffing needs and the people with the skills and potential to perform in these critical roles. The Office of Human Resources’ Succession Planning Toolkit will help guide you, although we strongly suggest you seek consultation from our office to help with the facilitation of this process.
