This is the tactical execution of the Talent Strategy.

 

Tactics involve doing things right. And with the right strategy, a brilliant plan is executed brilliantly.

Talent Planning, therefore, provides the tactical execution plan by function so that the organization is both efficient and effective. In the end, planning helps you put the right people in the right roles.
