The aim of this stage is to come up with a plan to build the workforce you’ll need in the future.

In the build stage, you’ll:

  • revisit and validate any outputs you’ve created as part of your strategic workforce planning process
  • analyse the gap between where your business area is now and where you want to get to
  • develop kata boards to plan how you’ll implement and monitor your workforce change
  • develop a change canvas to help you build a narrative for change
  • come up with a roadmap to define the steps you need to take.

How to use the modules in this stage

We recommend you complete each module:

  • in a sequence from module 1 to 2
  • in a workshop style to maximise collaboration and creativity.

But you can also do each module as a small working group.

Who to involve

For this stage, we recommend you have:

  • a broad mix of your executive team with at least one director and one executive director
  • a communications manager or change management specialist
  • relevant HR business partners or people and culture employees.
