Administrative Memo Assignment
You are an upper-level manager in a large state government department. Your department is considering whether or not they have the capacity to create and implement a comprehensive succession plan, because over 35% of its workforce is now eligible for retirement. As such, your direct supervisor has asked you evaluate the degree to which this initiative will prove beneficial over the short- and long-term.
Using scholarly and practitioner literature, you must formulate an argument for or against this initiative. You do not have to conduct a cost-benefit analysis, but you must transparently present the pros and cons to the best of your ability to your direct supervisor.
