Succession Planning-Who Will Run Your Business When You Can't?
Whether it is because you would like to take a holiday or something more sudden and serious, like the flu hitting your business; who will keep your business going, if you can't?

You need to have a short-term succession plan for something as simple as a vacation and a longer -term plan as part of the Risk Management strategy for your business.

Risk Management is having a "Plan B" in the case of something detrimental happening to the business. Having a well-trained workforce, with people in leadership roles to keep the business operational during a planned or sudden departure of the owner or senior management should be part of your "Plan B."
