Collaborative, customized solutions for complex talent development challenges.

. . .

SIGMA’s customized consulting solves the challenges that are difficult to describe and hard to categorize. Our consultants will work with you to define the problem and create a customized solution that meets the unique needs of your organization. Engagements can be as large or as small as required, and project plans can be tailored to suit the structure and function of your team.


Examples of Past Customized Consulting Solutions

  • SIGMA Success Profiles™. Some organizations are not ready to invest in a full succession planning or talent development process. However, they are keen to understand their organization’s key roles more effectively. For organizations like this, SIGMA’s consulting team has helped leaders build SIGMA Success Profiles™ for critical roles in their company. These clients have effectively used success profiles to build job descriptions and create job ads for critical roles, redefine positions as the company grows, and support talent development for potential successors.
  • Structured Interview Process. SIGMA has offered custom support to clients that want to fill vacant roles on their teams. Based on best-practices, SIGMA has created structured interview processes for clients, including designing standardized interview questions, providing behaviorally-anchored rating scales for responses, sharing interview guide materials, and training interview raters on evaluating candidates to reduce bias. This comprehensive offering supports clients to build an interview process that is tailored to the unique roles in their organization.
  • Accountability Workshops. Sometimes our clients begin a strategic initiative, such as succession planning, and despite their best intentions they find the team struggles to maintain momentum over time. For clients like this, SIGMA has conducted a series of Accountability Workshops to ensure the organization remains focused, motivated, and on track to accomplish their strategic goals. These workshops are customized to address the specific challenges leadership teams face when implementing new initiatives and help keep strategic projects top of mind.


Customized consulting is ideal for organizations that:

  • Have already begun building their own talent development process and need tools that will incorporate their existing procedures and terminology.
  • Have a unique organizational hierarchy.
  • Require an integrated recruiting and onboarding strategy.
  • Need help with one step, or a combination of steps, in the succession planning or talent development process.
  • Require a comprehensive organizational transformation beyond the scope of SIGMA’s existing succession planning and talent development services.
