Plan, Do, Review… or just planning?

We should all be familiar with the concept of plan, do, review.  Yes? Certainly from our experience at InFocus HR, people teams are spending more time on planning.  We’ve facilitated the delivery of our first people plan back in 2010 for the Asian businesses of a large global bank.  At the time it wasn’t new for the bank but it was certainly new for the people team in the region, and of surprise to Business and Finance colleagues!

Since then we’ve facilitated, supported and delivered countless People plans and we know from various discussions with peers in other organisations that people leadership teams are planning more frequently.  So that’s all good, right?

M&A Leadership Assessment

Is your organisation planning potential M&A (mergers & acquisition) activity as part of it’s strategic plan? Do you understand how you will combine any new leadership teams?  Knowing skills, behaviour and experience is key, however understanding a persons impact and contribution will be critical for successful integration.

Bringing together any new leadership team can be problematic. Whether that’s the team leading the new organisation or teams within the business leading different functions its critical to get the team right.  At InFocus HR we’ve gained global in mergers and acquisitions. As a result we’ve supported a wide range of discussions around appointing a new leadership team.
