Growing competition and marketplace changes put continuous pressure on key internal organizations such as Product Development, Engineering, and IT to rapidly adapt and innovate to meet the needs and direction of the business. Planning horizons for these organizations are longer which makes it more challenging to change direction quickly.
Let’s face it, these internal organizations are human resource intensive with well-established skill sets. Adapting large, complex, and specifically skilled teams to new opportunities is a challenge. The companies who can continually evolve and adapt their workforces to align with company direction will have a distinct competitive edge.
This guide is intended as a self-assessment tool for internal enterprise organizations that want to better understand how their execution of resource management processes are contributing to or inhibiting the bottom line. This guide also provides context and assessment ideas for other operational implications of resource management.
