Workforce & Succession Planning Strategic Alignment of HR

Successful and effective organizations align their human resources functions around strategic goals and objectives.

SWOT (Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats) Analysis

We will perform a SWOT Analysis with SMEs through on-site focus groups to address the future workforce goals and weaknesses within the agency or organization. With careful consideration given to strategic plans and objectives, we conduct the SWOT analysis, which forward looking, and will make projections focusing on the next 3-5 years. Through separate SWOT analysis sessions with executives, managers, supervisors, and incumbents in Mission Critical Occupations, we will identify and link related SWOT aspects. From these linkages, we will create plans and action items to take advantage of strengths and opportunities and mitigate weaknesses and threats to the workforce. To ensure agreement with these aspects throughout the workforce, we will conduct a management verification panel ensure the information gathered during the SWOT Analysis sessions is accurate.

Scenario Planning

In conjunction with the SWOT Analysis focus groups, our consultants will perform Scenario Planning with SMEs to forecast future scenarios for targeted positions or occupations. Looking forward at workforce and workload factors, linkages are developed to build likely scenarios of the future workforce and its drivers. Through Scenario Planning, we help agencies develop the agility to prepare for any possible risks and opportunities that may occur specifically within the target occupations.

Strategic Alignment Report

The results of the SWOT Analysis and Scenario Planning will be incorporated into a summary of findings and the information will be integrated into an overall strategy and recommendations report.
