Why Choose SIGMA for Succession?

Are you looking for help with your succession plan? DIY succession planning can be a long and arduous process, and many companies who attempt to create an internal plan fail to get their process off the ground. Common roadblocks include: failure to implement a standardized procedure, use objective metrics, create talent development plans, or effectively measure progress. Working with a consultant can not only save time but ensure that any plan you make is robust, effective, and designed to meet your goals.
