Many SME companies we meet have a clear vision of what they want their revenue and profit to be in 5 years time but haven't really considered what their team needs to look like to deliver it. A lot of SME companies recruit as they go and at some point the owner / CEO realises that they don't have any internal talent to drive a successful succession plan thus making their business vulnerable and dependant on themselves.

Please make your succession planning an integral part of your commercial strategy and ensure you recruit employees that align to leadership development and able to deliver your growth strategy.
