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?
