Perspectives in Manpower Planning. An Edinburgh Group Report.
Institute of Personnel Management, London (England).
The examination of manpower planning is an important management activity rather than as a specialist technique is the purpose of this pamphlet. "The Climate of Manpower Planning" describes the present circumstances in which manpower studies are carried out and the national economic and political forces which affect organizations. "Motivation for Manpower Studies,""Manpower Analysis," and "Manpower Utilization: The First Priority" discuss company involvement in such planning and basic information gathering systems, and emphasize the need for studies of manpower utilization. "Manpower Forecasting" and "Manpower Planning in the Organization" distinguish between manpower forecasting and manpower planning, and indicate how a forecast is turned into a plan. "Manpower and Government" discusses the role of government in national manpower investigations. "Manpower and Training" shows how national training needs and requirements can be closely linked to a manpower plan. "Manpower and Education" discusses the implications of present trends in the educational system for the future availability of manpower. (EM)
