Report says Apple has CEO succession plan

Last week, we reported on an Apple shareholder that wanted the company to publish a CEO succession plan and keep it updated on an annual basis.

I conjectured that Apple has such a plan in place, but doesn’t see the need to make it public yet. According to a report by Korn/Ferry International, Apple does indeed have such a plan. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Apple is one of only about 35% of major corporations with such a plan in place, in fact.

I’m not surprised. Jobs’ health has been in the news on and off for the last few years, and Apple’s executives aren’t naive. Even though Jobs is possibly the most influential CEO of any major corporation, he’s still human. That said, I don’t think Apple will publish it anytime soon.
