More About This Textbook


The purpose of the descriptive quantitative study was to identify whether or not, and to what degree, succession planning was occurring in credit unions affiliated with the Filene Research Institute's Research Council and Filene i3 work group. The study involved an online survey, the Credit Union Succession Planning Survey, developed and pilot tested as a part of the study. Forty respondents participated in the study, for an overall response rate of 39.6%. The analysis included frequency counts for responses, determining the mean and standard deviation, and calculating the Spearman correlation coefficients based on the participants' demographics and the survey questions. The survey results found that 70% of the credit union leaders who responded indicated their organizations have succession plans in place. The key positions for these credit unions included the chief executive officer/president, financial executive, and operations executive. The number of these positions included in the succession plan ranged from one to five (M = 3.59, SD = 1.73). The findings showed that both large credit unions, those over {dollar}500 million in assets, and small credit unions, those under {dollar}500 million in assets, lacked succession plans. Study recommendations included: (a) that credit union leaders begin looking at employees skills on a long-term basis, 6-10 years from now; (b) to include positions beyond executives in succession plans by providing retention, recruitment, and potential successors for any key position in the organization; (c) the recommendation to the NCUA, as the regulator of credit unions, is to address the issue of succession planning separately from the CAMEL rating; and (d) further exploration of credit union succession planning with emphasis on a broader population to see if the results of the study's small population match the results from a broader credit union population.
