Nonprofit CEO Transitions Resource Center

Summary

Leadership transitions can be tricky and require that many people in the organization work together effectively. The board, executive team, and the departing CEO need to manage the exit process. At the same time, the search committee needs to find an internal candidate who’s ready to step up or begin to look for a qualified external candidate. Through it all, the organization should experience as little upheaval as possible, so it can continue to deliver on its mission. The articles in Bridgespan’s CEO Transition Resource Center can help your organization successfully survive—and even thrive during—a leadership transition.
