Leveraging Allies and Partnerships for Strategic Workforce Planning - Workforce Planning Exchange

Effective strategic workforce planning can help organizations identify the skills and capabilities they need, address workforce gaps, and optimize their workforce to better align their capabilities with their strategic objectives, driving organizational capability growth. Effective collaboration between workforce planning professionals and others in the organization is critical to achieve business goals and optimal results.

But it's not always that easy. Workforce planning is dealing with constant change, looking for buy-in from key stakeholders, and trying to find the best way to measure success among several other daily challenges. So how do we communicate the value of strategic workforce planning? Who - or what - gets in the way of us delivering value to the organization? How might we advocate for - and achieve - solutions that our organizations need? Who should we develop relationships with to get there?

Workforce Planning Exchange members will come together to discuss their collaboration experiences, what has worked through the years, and any lessons learned along the way.


  • A better understanding of how to advocate for strategic workforce planning.
  • Considerations for the mindsets and skills needed for strategic workforce planning professionals.
  • Best and next practices in collaborating with key allies such as other HR centers of excellence, and the broader organization, to achieve optimal results.
  • Recognizing that workforce planning outputs can have a short shelf-life, how do we deal with constant change while keeping the long-term goals in mind?
