Discussion: People Analytics and Human Capital Trends

You’re an HR professional at Pinnacle Pharmaceuticals. Currently, there is no succession plan or “bench” for the company’s current leaders.

You will need a plan for speaking to the CEO if you’re going to get succession planning on the list of strategic priorities for the company. In order to take the lead on this, you’ll need to anticipate and plan ahead.
