From the Paper:

"The iterative discipline of workforce planning defines a cycle, which includes filling resource requests, analyzing utilization, forecasting capacity, managing and identifying the people to fill that capacity, and then starting the cycle again. The payoff for a commitment to managing and planning a workforce in this iterative manner is that the organization will be well equipped to look ahead and take corrective actions as needed (The Project Management Hut, 2010).
To gain the most advantage from the workforce planning system, organizations should consider the following:
- Minimize "stovepipes" and treat the organization as a shared workforce. This ensures the most appropriate talent on each project, and helps to reduce ineffective usage of management favorites with inappropriate experience and skill sets.
- Make workforce planning both bidirectional and collaborative. Involvement from many users when identifying requirements and selecting the best system to use will help ensure widespread adoption. Consistent participation by employees at all levels is a critical to component of effective workforce planning.
- Model supply and demand. Identify missing elements and include plans to fill those needs. Use the system to answer important questions like "Do we have the right talent to meet upcoming demand?" and "Are billable resources being used optimally?"
- Use workforce planning to close the "intelligence loop." This helps tie business operations to the strategic management team, and provides executives with better information to identify risks, support growth, and maintain profitability.
- Define and measure your needs for scalability and flexibility. In fast-moving, dynamic industries, organizations need the ability to alter business processes quickly, in response to changes in the market or regulations. Workflows should be easy to configure without programming (The Project Management Hut, 2010)."
