Is it possible to think strategically about succession in the public sector? The author reviews the private-sector succession literature for insight and analyzes the barriers in the public sector to taking succession seriously. With a case study based on her own experience managing succession at the New York City Department of Juvenile Justice, she offers four strategies that the public sector leader who is committed to a strategic approach to succession might usefully employ.
