Plan for your strategic initiatives with Workforce Planning

You can now model and manage the impact of projects and strategic initiatives on the demand side of your workforce plan. For example you may be planning a large transformation or software implementation that will need a large project team for 18 months. You can now model this type of periodic demand in Workforce Planning.

How does planning for strategic initiatives work?

You can now incorporate project-based demand into your workforce plans. You can do this from the "Demand planning" page of Workforce planning.

  1. Select "Project-based demand"
  2. Create your projects, give them a name and an optional description
  3. Then select your project and add demand relating to the project

This demand will then be incorporated into your Workforce Plan alongside your business as usual demand drivers.

Trigger on-demand calculations via our APIs
