A month and a half after HBO's Game of Thrones season 7 finale, it's still a good time to plan for the coming winter. The season, of sorts, I'm referring to; however, has less to do with White Walkers and more to do with workplace trends and leadership continuity.
Planning for succession is not something most leaders typically think about until they are ready to retire. Troublesome turnaround rates can also be mitigated by implementing a proper succesion plan, unlike the due course of the Lannister line. And while the consequences of not having a plan in place can have a lasting effect on your business (or The Seven Kingdoms for that matter), the process of creating one is nothing to lose your head over.
