Balancing The Long-Term Goals And Short-Term Drivers

Write an overview of the importance of an integrated annual operating plan for human resources in view of the continuously changing market climate. Explain how such a plan might provide balance between short-term drivers and long-term needs. Describe the circumstances appropriate to deviating from such a plan or justifying a different path than that planned. Discuss concrete strategies, including metrics and milestones, that can be used by the Department of Human Resources to add rigor in achieving this balance while meeting long-term corporate goals for the organization’s overall needs.
