Strategic Workforce Planning is an extension to the existing concepts of talent management but deals with the future planning of talent and fast pace of change that affects this. At its core, it is about aligning the talent and business strategy and linking the planning, analysis and development of both. This strategic approach to talent planning is starting to occur in the global market and is gathering pace as the right solution for organisations who want to think about their talent in a more strategic way. The innovative approach to planning and analysis addresses the real risks posed to implementation of business plans by the lack of available cost effective talent in critical areas.
This Strategic Workforce Planning model has been developed by Clare Mulligan based on her own research and experience.
