Think about it: When you face a challenge, what do you do? You put a plan together to solve it. Why would it be any different for your number one company challenge of people issues?
Talent Planning is the process of proactively putting a 3-year talent plan together to solve your people issues and achieve your 3-year strategic vision.
Before you can do that, you need a 3-year strategic vision for your business. You need to know where you’re going before planning for the talent you will need to get there.
Finally, you need a cadence for your execution (4-month sprints) to ensure things get done and your business moves toward achieving your 3-year vision.
Talent Planning is the combination of strategy, talent, and execution. When those three components work together, you will solve your people issues and accelerate your company’s growth.
