The truth is that busy executives, harassed managers and stretched HR teams don’t want data, a beautifully defined problem statement, or even a mathematical model describing how to “close the gap” – they want a prioritised task list and actions that yield demonstrable results.  Matt presents a short case study on realising the benefit of an investment in SWP through actually doing something with the data.

Matt Higgs brings a case study about how to move from Plan to Do, how to keep the plan on track, and how to keep it simple and effective. Attend and join the discussion about ensuring your strategic workforce planning leads to action.

  • Lots of time effort and energy goes into creating the data sources for SWP
  • There are lots of fancy tools out there that can show the data
  • There are lots of conversation about “insights”
  • It’s very trendy to ask for “all the data”, especially in HR circles.

This session will explore:

  • When to stop planning and start doing
  • How to keep things aligned and demonstrate progress.

Learning outcomes:

  • How to make our “geek work” relevant and useful by designing and implementing process and products that drive the right outcomes
  • How to get greater buy-in to the planning process by showing the outcomes early.
