Plan, Do, Review… or just planning?

We should all be familiar with the concept of plan, do, review.  Yes?

Certainly from my own experience HR now seems to spend more time planning.  I facilitated the delivery of my first people plan back in 2010 when I was based in Asia as Regional HR COO for a large global bank.  At the time it wasn’t new for the bank but it was certainly new for the HR team in the region, and of surprise to our Business and Finance colleagues!

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