Guidance on Succession Planning for Public Body Boards

Executive Summary

'Light touch’ guidance which seeks to help public bodies develop effective succession plans

for their Boards. This has been co-produced by the Scottish Government’s Public Bodies

Unit and Public Appointments Team, sponsor teams and a range of staff and Board

members of public bodies, building on good practice.

An interactive ‘toolkit’ of resources to support this guidance is also available online, which will be updated regularly. It will be up to each public body to decide which elements of the toolkit

(if any) are most likely to be of assistance to them and what is likely to work best for them

in relation to different stages of succession planning. There is no requirement for public

bodies to use any element of the toolkit.
