Part 2 of our guidance on how to choose a managerial successor.

Every manager is obligated to name a successor, or #2. Here's how to figure out who on your team is the right choice.

Most managers don't name a successor or #2, even though they're obligated to do so. This is in part because most executives don't realize they're supposed to hold managers accountable to do so. But even if your boss doesn't demand it, it's still part of being an effective manager.

And for the record, this cast extends our guidance on choosing successors. We have touched on this before, in our 2009 guidance, "Quick and Dirty Choosing a Number Two."
