My best advice for Stragegic Workforce Planning practitioners or leaders who want to ensure SWP has an impact on the bottom line of the business.

My advice:

  • Understand the situation via SWOT and/or PESTLE analytics
  • Find what the business REALLY cares about
  • Reduce the scope of the SWP initiative
  • Prioritise around critical roles (additional video to follow)
  • Evolve and Iterate: start small and then expand

This video is part of the Strategic Workforce Planning series so please check out the playlist which also include introductions to SWP, the different types of SWP and will include videos focusing on forecasting supply, demand and scenario planning.
