One of the biggest obstacles to strategic workforce planning (SWP) is that planning three-to-five years into the future seems impossible to many companies. “Our business is changing so much,” say human resource (HR) executives and SWP leaders. “We can barely plan one year ahead.”

•  How can HR and SWP use scenario planning?
•  How can scenario planning help leaders prepare for an uncertain future?
