A Report to Justify Why RoSPA Meets the Blue Group Research Criteria.

Succession Planning

Initially the start of my research focused upon the first aspect of the criteria, Succession Planning. It was my intention to gain a "feel for" whether the organisation displayed "actual" evidence of practicing succession planning, rather than finding a specific statement,
