This descriptive critical incident is based upon a real life situation encountered by the author. As vice president and a member of the Board of Directors of the Colonel Crowther Foundation, the author and members of the board were shocked and deeply saddened by the unexpected death of the visionary founder and executive director of the foundation, Dr. Bob Hileman. Dr. Hileman’s death from a massive heart attack left a major void in the organization’s leadership and created a crisis in succession management for the board, posing a threat to the very survival of the foundation.
