A query about the survival of our successors. Most of us, I think, take it as an article of experience and faith that when long term leaders leave their successors tend to be "unintentional interims." Advising a group that is facing that situation and I realize I've never seen any numbers about that. Anyone know of evidence beyond the anecdotal? Also, if anyone knows anything about the success rate of CEO's/ED's who succeed us--the post interims? Feel free to respond here or at firstname.lastname@example.org Thx.
