Free Self-Guided Succession Planning Training

Succession planning is a necessary strategic leadership development process for organizations of all industries and sizes. However, many organizations operate without a strategic plan for their future. Succession planning is often delayed, not because organizations don’t understand the importance, but because they don’t know where to begin. To help make succession planning more approachable, SIGMA has developed a free online, self-guided succession planning training. This course takes approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes to complete and can be completed at any time. 

Throughout the five modules listed below, training participants will learn how to leverage SIGMA’s six-step succession planning process. Each module includes all of the tools and templates required to begin drafting a customized succession plan immediately.

If you have questions about the training material or would like to discuss what succession planning looks like at your organization, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our succession consultants would be happy to speak with you.

Final Succession Planning Training Quiz

You have now completed all five modules of SIGMA’s Succession Planning Training. To ensure you have achieved the learning objectives outlined in the syllabus, our consultants have created an optional final quiz that should take about 10 minutes to complete. This quiz is designed to assess your comprehension and confirm that you have understood and retained the material. As there is no certification or designation for completing the training, a passing grade is not a requirement of training completion.
