Senior Director, Strategic Workforce Planning

12:35pm-1:10pm EST Leveraging Roles to Develop Skills-Based Planning Mechanisms

General Session

Like a modern equivalent of The Brady Bunch’s iconic “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia,” it seems like everyone is talking about “skills, skills, skills.” Observe a typical planning discussion and it won’t take long for the magic word to reverberate throughout the conversation. Yet amidst all the buzz is the reality that few have hit their stride when it comes to putting concepts into practice. Traditional role-based planning is an excellent entry and ongoing anchor point. In this session, David Slovak will share insights from FIS’s “Skills of the Future” agenda.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Why role-based supply and demand modelling remains an essential foundation for skills-based planning
  • How to navigate the intersection of roles and skills
  • How to focus on core capability while planning for sophistication
  • Where external data, trends, and insights can boost methodology
