Skills, knowledge, competencies, motivation and relationships represent the most critical assets of any organization. Professional development activities are too often funded without the benefit of a focused, strategic plan that defines critical workforce development targets.
Organizations in the public as well as the private sector must adapt to evolving market conditions. Ask people in the photography or music recording business. Disruptive technologies, diverse populations and new forms of competition threaten what were traditionally comfortable niche markets.
Define a workforce development strategy in alignment with top strategic priorities.
Identify key staff members who demonstrate potential for leadership.
Implement a real plan to build skills and competencies that will support top organizational goals.
Get started now and make progress before irreplaceable expertise walks out the door.
