“Total Recall: Developing a Strategic Plan in Partnership with Senior Leadership”

Presented by: John Baldino, MSHRD


Strategy is a buzzword that can instill fear for those who have a role in its actualization. For the human resources practitioner, it often means realization that the depth of training is limited. When were you taught how to be strategic?

The business necessity for strategic thinking, planning and implementation is acute in business. Working through the three building blocks for a strategic plan – People, Process and Systems/Resources – the human resources practitioner will need to master all three elements, not just the people portion. Determining how the right resources will be found and put into place is a vital competency for HR.

Utilizing tools such as SWOT, Gap Analysis and MVV centrality, the human resources professional will be able to partner with senior leadership in driving the discussion around objectives and measurable results. The attendee will be challenged in his/her own knowledge in these areas, as well as how any roadblocks have kept human resources at a distance from previous strategic planning initiatives. The attendee will be able to identify and use relevant applications to transform their role at their workplaces.
