Timely execution of strategy for competitive advantage

Strategic workforce planning is a measurable, repeatable business process for timely execution of strategic initiatives.

  • It’s about continuously updating and clarifying demand
  • then assessing talent supply, addressing pain points
  • and anticipating both demand and supply six plus months ahead of the need

Even the right business strategy to take your organization to the next level typically is relevant for only 18 months. So roles that are most critical to executing your business strategy change as well.  We call these Roles of Impact® because if they’re filled by the right people with the right skills at the right time, executing business strategy on time won’t be left to chance. Can you afford not to invest?
