In business planning, evidence informs processes such as strategic planning, financial and risk management, business process reviews and redesign, mergers and acquisitions, service level forecasting, and activity-based costing.
Evidence is also integral to workforce planning. This includes both short-term operational plans and longer-term strategic workforce planning, or human capital planning.
Within talent management, evidence is applied to a wide range of questions, such as:
- Do we have enough proficient staff in the right roles and places?
- How are we managing the changing demographics of our workforce?
- Which skills and capabilities will we need–or no longer need–to stay competitive over the next five years?
