Strategic Workforce Planning and the New Role of Talent Manager


This workshop will address some of the crucial distinctions that separate strategic from operational workforce planning. Examples and case studies will be provided to illustrate each part of the strategic workforce planning methodology. 
The topic of “human capital decision frameworks” will be introduced and discussed in depth.  These frameworks build on the position held by Boudreau, Ulrich and others that HR needs to become more of a decision science to advance the organization. 
Among the decision frameworks described are: 

  • Strategic alignment
  • Research
  • Frameworks for greater leverage
  • Analytics
  • Transparency and proven methodologies 

This interactive workshop will equip participants with research and best practices. Breakout groups will discuss their current use of strategic workforce planning and how to apply these lessons to their own organization.
