Sonangol deploys Succession Wizard to fill key positions

Norchard Solutions’ package identifies skill gaps in organization, plans staffing requirements.

Angolan state oil company Sonangol is to use Norchard Solutions’ ‘Succession Wizard’ package to support its succession planning and staff requirements forecasting. Succession Wizard (SW) is claimed to take the ‘gut instinct and guesswork’ out of staff appointment and promotions. SW identifies critical gaps in management and plans future staffing needs accordingly.


SW director Jon Lear said, ‘Organizations generally have a wealth of talent already working in different positions and levels throughout the business. This hidden resource should be identified and tapped as it is a key factor in effective succession planning. SW does this and shows you what skills and resources you already have at your disposal. SW identifies people who, with support and training, can climb your management structure and potentially become its future leaders.’ Sonangol is to use SW across its 30 worldwide subsidiary companies.
