Approaches?

Can the same results be achieved through the use of permanent part-time or

temporary part-time staff, rotating employees, or internships? If the answer is

yes, then replacing a key job incumbent may be unnecessary. However, as in

outsourcing, pay attention to criticality and control. If the work is critical to

the continued survival of the organization, then using innovative staffing approaches

may prove to be unwise because that will grant too much influence

to an individual or group with little or no stake in the organization’s existence.

If the work must meet stringent, specialized requirements that require mastery,

then part-time talent may not be able to achieve or maintain that mastery.

Question 7: Can Combining the Approaches Listed Above Obviate the Need for a

Replacement in a Key Position?

In other words, is it possible to split apart the key results or outcomes desired

from the key position and handle them separately—through reengineering,

team-based management, organizational redesign, or other means? If that

question can be answered yes, then it should be possible to ensure that the

organization achieves the same results as those provided by the key job incumbent—

but without the need for a replacement. Use the worksheet in Exhibit

11-2 to decide when it is possible to answer yes to any one—or all—of the

questions listed above.
