Organization impact:

On May 25, 2015 Forbes Magazine in an article on HR defined Workforce Planning as, “The War Room of HR”, detailing how a highly effective workforce plan acts as the cornerstone of strategic human resources.
To lead people through change, HCI research has identified three key roles that HR must play:

  1. The Architect uses design thinking to construct and experiment with change and makes sure resources and key players are secured.
  2. The Broadcaster communicates the change with stories and data, opens the dialogue between all parties, and emotionally connects people to the intention behind the work.
  3. The Coach addresses personal resistance to change and holds people accountable for doing their part, while rewarding achievements along the way.
