The Taleo Blog points to a survey which says that 40% organizations surveyed in the US said they were unprepared for succession planning.
Great succession planning done well can really energize the workforce. It requires hard choices and constructive confrontation to make it a success however, and that is why some organizations shy away from it.
To help, self-awareness of one's own strengths and weaknesses are foremost. Understanding that is key to a person realising that some roles need talent they might not have.
However, organizational cultures are such that self-reflection or even organizational reflection is frowned upon.
