English term or phrase: Complete successor
I am translating a presentation on talent review procedures in a corporation. I can’t quite make out what ‘’complete successor’’ means, in the last bulleted point. Does it perhaps mean ‘’enter the names of people who might be successors to current leaders or officers?

Thank you

''Slide 10
Some instructions for the 2012 TR (talent review)

• Widely use talent definition
• Focus on development actions and succession plan
• Identify next broadening job for everybody so it can be input for EMEA Career Committees
• Think of mobility basing on PLP conversations
• Use test to validate all Top 10 Band F+
• Include nominations to Talent Programs
• Complete successor in the TR database ''

complete by providing the name of the successor
Explanation:
It seems to be there's a certain field in the TR database that has to be completed with the name of the successor.

My interpretation, at least. Hope it helps!

agree  Erich Ekoputra: Asker might think "complete" as adjective while it is a verb here.

Explanation:
Hi! Do you know what is in this database? Or what it's for? I assume since this is TR review and earlier entry was about Succession plan(ning) with Career committees that this is the most likely use for the database: all those names of people who may fill senior shoes

It seems like badly written English "broadening job" "nominations to" "basing on" etc. What is "PLP?"Personalized Learning Programme? n the database

Medium confidence.

OK. I think this is the most likely meaning then.

Notes to answerer
Asker: PLP, most probably. stands for ''performance and learning programme''. No, I don't know what is in the database. Thanks!
