Alberta’s Tomorrow Project (ATP) is a longitudinal research study aiming to discover what causes and what may prevent cancer and other chronic diseases. To protect 50-year continuity, ATP needs to adopt succession planning strategies to secure knowledge capital and transitions through multiple generations of leadership. Project stakeholders have established the desire to integrate succession plans through knowledge management and talent management strategies for long-term sustainability. Through the action research model and the utilization of employee surveys and key stakeholder interviews, this inquiry identified risks and possible solutions to the challenges of recruitment, retention, fixed-term contracts, employee development, knowledge transfer, and project vision. Findings revealed opportunities for nurturing a knowledge-sharing culture and promoting additional development practices, while keeping an eye on the project vision. Recommendations advised the development and integration of a robust succession management system to safeguard 50-year continuity and vision.
