In an era of globally increasing complexity and competition for talent, shortages and misalignment of people can derail an organization’s effectiveness. Positioned puts them back on track.

This unprecedented collection of some of the world’s best people strategists tackles the ongoing supply and demand challenge of having the right people available at the right time. Authors such as Dave Ulrich, John Boudreau, Jac Fitz-enz, Jim Walker, Peter Howes, Dan Hilbert, Naomi Stanford, Tom Davenport, Ian Ziskin, and 22 others supply a wealth of collected wisdom, historical insights, analytical models, personal accounts, trend projections, and illuminating case studies of what works, what does not work, and why. The book includes:

1. An historical overview that traces people planning through the ages and the evolution of modern SWP processes

2. Current best practices that show how organizations across the world are solving their workplace challenges, including case studies from private and public sector organizations

3. Analytics that cover the metrics and analysis techniques used by leading companies to make better workforce planning decisions

4. Future directions that look at the integration of people strategies with forces such as disruptive technologies, globalization on steroids, multidimensional cultures within a virtual workplace, the impact of social media on the career marketplace, and more

Capacity and knowledge gaps are a drain for any organization. Through case studies, metrics, and analysis, Positioned delivers proven strategies for deploying key talent to the right positions or filling essential new positions quickly and seamlessly.
