Abstract

Succession planning are one of the most important human resource issues today. Succession planning refer to ongoing and systematic efforts to ensure continuity of leadership, protection, intellectual capital development and knowledge for the future of the organization and to promote individual development (Hassan & Nasibollah, 2016). In addition, succession planning is also seen as any effort taken to ensure that the performance of the organization, division or department remains effective through the implementation of development, replacement of staff and strategic planning over key positions over time (Rothwell, 2005). Recognizing the importance of succession planning many previous studies have been conducted to look at succession planning using a variety of variables such as demographic factors, educational qualifications, positions, talent management, performance management, mentoring, employee engagement, training, tenure, work experience, leader development and promotion. In this regard, this paper aims to look at previous studies on the succession planning from 1950 to 2009.
