Effective talent management starts with the business strategy: identifying and building the capabilities needed to deliver future business performance. Yet many organisations’ talent strategies simply extrapolate forward from today, failing to consider how the business context will change.

Strategic workforce planning is key to avoiding this trap, enabling the organisation to identify the talent needed to execute the strategy.

Learning objectives:
• Explore how to make workforce planning a meaningful process that’s focused on executing business strategy.
• Consider how to connect workforce planning with people strategy and other talent management processes.
• Assess your current approach to workforce planning to determine how to make it more effective and future-focused.
• Develop a practical approach to workforce planning that has business impact, and is not just a data collection cottage industry.
