Ruse, Donald; Jansen, Karen
CUPA-HR Journal, v59 n1 p28-33 Apr-Sum 2008
Human capital planning is an important tool in predicting future talent needs and sustaining organizational excellence over the long term. This article examines the concept of human capital planning and outlines how institutions can use HCP to identify the type and number of talent needed both now and in the future, recognize and prioritize talent gaps, and take action and make investments to close those gaps, thus avoiding talent deficits and ensuring bench strength well into the future.
