Each organization prepares and measures succession candidates differently. Succession Planning allows you to customize the various readiness levels of a candidate in a way that makes sense to your organization. 

By default, the readiness levels are organized by a Ready in x Months format. These readiness levels can be easily updated to reflect different time intervals or edited to a different format altogether, i.e. time, competency, etc.
