ADGR 7790 Workforce Planning and Employment (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Strategic Workforce Planning takes a broad view of the organization to assure the right people and right skillsets are in place to drive strategy and reinforce culture. Key stakeholders are partners in the process to ensure adoption within the organization, and collaboration is necessary to drive alignment of people, process and technology. Workforce planning considers the balance between the current state, the organization’s evolution, and the desired future state. Finding that balance requires measuring the system, and evaluating both the internal and external environments. This course will help you think about how to assess organizations, learn to work with the organization’s strategy and culture to determine the key factors driving Workforce Planning, how to apply different frameworks, and to create a gap analysis between the current state and the desired state. From this framework, you will look at ways to implement the strategy, and learn to use data to inform your thinking.
