Strategic Plan “I like to start from the big picture, look at or create an organizational strategic plan, and then map HR programs to meet the strategic plan. “Human resource problems are rarely one dimensional. Skill shortages for example, can arise from over-generalized job profiles, non-predictive testing and/or restrictive labour contract conditions. Designing solutions to most HR problems requires focus on a number of HR disciplines.
HR data is crucial to diagnosing problems and setting outcome targets. Short term solutions to data needs can be utilized while constructing recommendations for longer term improvements in HR data systems.”
Operational Plan With her broad range of experience, Anne can quickly discern organizational problems in consultation with management team(s) and generate a pragmatic plan for measurable improvements.
