Further, a Gallup survey showed that poorly lead work groups are 50% less productive and 44% less profitable than well lead ones.

Succession planning is a process for identifying and developing new leaders who can replace old leaders when they leave, retire or die. ... In business, it entails developing internal people with the potential to fill key business leadership positions in the company.
With careful planning and preparation, organizations can manage the changes that result from a generational transfer of leadership as well as the ongoing changes that occur regularly when key employees leave an organization.
Although the type and extent of planning will be different, organizations both large and small need to have some sort of succession plan. Effective succession planning supports organizational stability and sustainability by ensuring there is an established process to meet staffing requirements. Boards and executive directors can demonstrate leadership by having the strategies and processes in place to ensure that these transitions occur smoothly, with little disruption to the organization.
Workforce Differentiation and Optimization are a set of procedures that an organization can implement to maintain the most efficient employee/management team possible, maximizing profits and ensuring long-term success. Workforce planning falls into two broad categories: operational and strategic.
Workforce Differentiation is the process of identifying and rewarding individual employees for different levels of performance, potential or impact on the business.
To achieve workforce differentiation the actual performance behaviors required by the workforce and managers must be identified. They involve these 4 elements:
Workforce Success – These are defined as culture, mindset, competencies, and behaviors that drive operational, customer, and financial strategies that drive organizational success.
Workforce Mindset and Culture –The culture shapes employee behavior and the behavior shapes the culture. Culture can also be measured and assessed in terms of its impact on the business's financial success.
Workforce Competencies – Competencies represent the knowledge, skill, and ability of employees. Competencies for each employee can also be measured and monitored.
Workforce Behaviors – Leaders and employees must behave in ways consistent with the strategy for it to be executed. These behaviors can be defined and measured to ensure that leaders and employees do what strategy suggests needs to be done.
Operational workforce planning functions on a person-to-person level and streamlines employee-related operations day by day. Examples include:
- Optimizing work schedules and employee hours
- Optimizing the distribution of talent among divisions and departments
- Identifying functional needs and hiring new workers or developing current workers to meet those needs
- Identifying obsolete functions and reassigning workers as necessary
- Ensuring the greatest possible overall worker job satisfaction
Strategic workforce planning deals with broad-based issues that evolve over months and years and can encompass all the aspects of an enterprise. Examples include:
- Forecasting knowledge drain as employees leave the organization
- Forecasting future talent needs
- Determining and evaluating likely future sourcing options
- Implementing an effective workforce alignment and analytics strategy
Effective workforce management strategies and practices have a powerful effect on business outcomes which include Performance, Profitability, and Shareholder Value.
Business has historically used the wrong perspective when it comes to a workforce strategy
Instead of focusing on how to execute strategy through the performance of the workforce, the common priority is cost control from the workforce.
Financial performance suffers because maximization of workforce performance is not realized
Wrong HR metrics are used. HR is focused on operational efficiency and administrative compliance instead of the strategic value of its workforce.
A WORKFORCE SUCCESS STRATEGY
Is not a “Throw money at the problem” solution, it is a long-term investment with a measurable return.
The strategic benefits of improved workforce performance represent a significant opportunity for overall business performance.
Stops focusing on transactions.

The effective development and execution of a Strategic Plan for your business is a critical step in its sustainability, growth and profitability.
Strategic planning is a business management activity that is used to set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, establish agreement around intended outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment. It is a disciplined process that produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. Effective strategic planning tells not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful.
Strategic planning efforts managed internally frequently develop several shortcomings. These include:
- Inability to focus on real issues due to internal environmental issues
- Superficial plan design flaws due to improper focus
- Lack of strong internal guidance and knowledge of the process
- Shifting priorities that result in plans not being completed
Our facilitated approach helps you:
- Select the correct Strategic Planning Team
- Navigate the focus landscape to ensure that true strategic issues are identified without getting mired in too much minutia
