Employee retention and succession planning for a Department of the Navy program office

by Bagley, Tracy L., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2008, 140 pages; 3291972


The workforce planning process aids in the development of employee knowledge, skills, and abilities. This further enables employees to fill key leadership positions and provide for continuity of knowledge within the organization through employee retention. The President's Management Agenda (PMA) FY 2002 stressed government reform through workforce planning. The Department of the Navy (DON) established that it must have a trained and knowledgeable workforce and the organizational architecture with characteristics that are flexible, efficient, and effective. This study will examine the extent to which a DON program office succession plan is developed to better utilize the experienced current employees and, whether managers/supervisors have identified/integrated these resources into plans/programs established as result of the PMA initiative.
