Workforce and Succession Planning


State agencies are expected to provide high quality services and are held to a high standard. Therefore agencies must be citizen-centered and results-driven. In an effort to improve and enhance effectiveness and to support State agencies in their drive towards becoming high performing organizations, the Department of Civil Service (DCS) in collaboration with several partner agencies has developed this guide to effective workforce and succession planning.

This edition of the Workforce and Succession Planning Guide has drawn from a number of sources including the very robust and valuable "Workforce and Succession Planning" guide that was developed by an interagency workgroup in 2002.

This guide provides an updated and consolidated view of Workforce and Succession Planning and is intended to give agencies a consistent, off the shelf approach to this work.

We hope you find it useful!
