An enchanting, quick-to-read fable that every current or future partner in a mid-sized professional services firm concerned about succession management should read – for their own good. Succession planning is not inherently difficult or intellectually complex. It does, however, strike many raw nerves, both with those who are currently at the top of their firms and are contemplating retirement (or not), and also with those in the early stages of their careers who are anxious to know what the future holds for them in their current firm. Following the adventures of Eric, the hero of our story, will provide clear guidance on how to approach this seemingly intractable problem.
