While some practitioners of strategic HR fear that AI might one day replace them, the reality for the foreseeable future is far more encouraging: AI is powerful tool, but like any tool, it is only as effective as the human being who deploys it. AI is not here to supplant our work—it is here to guide and supplement our efforts, lending a competitive advantage to those who can harness its power.
Nowhere is this more true than in the realm of workforce planning. For large and complex organizations, planning was once an arduous and lengthy process, whereby hundreds of distinct talent needs across diverse geographies had to be identified, studied, and projected with careful attention. Now, AI can do much of this initial heavy lifting in minutes, freeing up the planner to focus on the critical 20% of talent that drives the most value. Speeding up the initial planning process leaves ample time for refinement and execution.
