SAP Succession Planning is a module of SAP HCM On-Premise Suite that is currently being phased out. SAP Succession Planning allows you to create job profiles and succession plans, ensuring that critical key positions can be staffed at all times.
Succession Planning is based on the concept of jobs and positions and only realizes its added value in combination with SAP Organizational Management, which it complements. If new positions are created in Organizational Management, Succession Planning facilitates a timely response, thus ensuring that you find the ideal candidate. In case you cannot find a suitable internal candidate, you can use SAP E-Recruiting or SuccessFactors Recruiting to find external candidates.
Via integration with SAP Qualification Management, you can match positions with potential successors in regard to qualification requirements and profiles and assign employees to trainings in SAP Learning Solution in order for them to develop the necessary qualifications in time.
SAP Succession Planning will no longer actively be further developed by SAP. SAP offers the extensive Succession solution from SuccessFactors, which is provided completely in the Cloud and can be integrated into your SAP HCM On-Premise or Cloud systems via standard interfaces.
