Strategic workforce planning (SWP) involves proactively identifying your organisation’s long-term business needs and developing an effective workforce plan to meet them. Yet despite its business-critical nature, many organisations do not understand the value of SWP or how to deliver it.

This masterclass gives you the skills needed to lead in this area of organisational development. You will learn how to align your people resources with the organisation’s business plan by getting the right people in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills. You will also leave with a five-step process to help you deliver SWP in your organisation.

The course content and case study reflect the current organisational design challenges resulting from the COVID-19 crisis. These include the sustainability of hard choices such as layoffs; matching the current workforce to the available work; and making rapid choices including redeployment or the delivery of new products and services.

Key benefits

For individuals

  • Demystify SWP and understand the value it can deliver
