This is the second in a series of blogs looking at the concept of business management in the people function and this week we’ll be looking at strategy and planning. If you missed the first blog we talked about the overall principle, and had a look at finance within the people function.
Do you have a people strategy/vision for your organisation? If the answer is no, then that’s perhaps the first step. They don’t have to be overly complicated, in fact the best ones tend to be simple statements. Above all they need to be easy to communicate and something for the organisation to rally around.
If you have your strategy the next question is how do you turn it into a reality i.e., what are you going to do and who is going to do it?
