Succession Planning

Identify, select, and develop your next generation of leaders

Nobody stays in the same job forever; illness, retirement, and turnover are unavoidable. Succession planning provides your company with a roadmap to ensure continuity when these changes occur. A good plan is objective and data-driven. It defines roles, identifies succession candidates, systematically measures their strengths, and guides their development. This process ensures your leaders will be ready to take on their new role when the time comes.

For over 50 years, SIGMA’s experts have combined evidence-based theory with practical industry experience. We can help prepare you to succeed during times of change.
