In my mailbox this week came two similar questions.
The first was about my blog (March 14 2011) Position Management vs. Organization Design. This correspondent asked:
Could you please clarify how you "Identify manpower flows"
What is the rationale for suggesting identifying a possible flow for each scenario - will they be different?
Isn't it an expensive endeavor to identify flows for each possible redesign scenario?
And, what methods do organizations/consultants typically use to do so?
The second person asked "if you come across any linkage or material regarding OD and Strategic workforce planning, let me know. It's the puzzle I can't figure out right now. OD and then SWP or SWP and then OD...or is it a combined process?
