About Lesson


Solution or recommendation

unplanned leave or absence of workers

Develop a cross-training program where staff members are trained in multiple roles. This ensures that others can cover essential tasks during unplanned absences. Encourage a culture where employees document their processes and responsibilities clearly, making it easier for others to step in. Additionally, maintain a flexible staffing plan with potential temporary or part-time staff who can be called upon when needed.

re-allocation of work tasks

Firstly, assess the workload and priorities of the team to determine which tasks are most critical. Communicate openly with the team about the need for task re-allocation. Match tasks with employees’ skills and capacities, ensuring they are equipped to handle their new responsibilities. Offer support and training if they need to acquire new skills. Monitor the workload to ensure it’s manageable and adjust as necessary.

succession planning for important roles

Start by identifying key roles and the skills required for these positions. Develop a talent pool within the organization by identifying and grooming potential successors. This can be achieved through targeted training, mentoring, and giving them exposure to various aspects of the critical role. Regularly review and update the succession plan to ensure it remains relevant. Encourage knowledge sharing and mentoring relationships between incumbents and potential successors to facilitate smooth transitions.
