A form of career development occurs through an organizational process of succession planning. Succession planning, when done well, provides a pool of people who are qualified to move into a higher hierarchy in the organization when vacancies are caused by retirement, relocation, death or illness, or separation from the company, voluntarily or involuntarily. The idea is to identify high potential employees and to provide them with special developmental opportunities to ensure that they are ready for promotion when the opportunity occurs and grab it. This is a very positive approach to career and organizational planning. However, there are some problems which may occur at times, often associated with the culture of the organization.
