"...this book is so good...that everyone in the field of strategic workforce planning (SWP), and anyone who has an interest in the topic, should own this book." --People & Strategy
From the C-suite to the sales force to the ground floor, downtime is deadly. When a job opens or turns over, organizations must adjust seamlessly. In Positioned, some of the world’s best people strategists examine how best to address the constant challenge of having the right people available when needed.
Thought leaders including Dave Ulrich, John Boudreau, James Walker, Jac Fitz-enz, Peter Howes, Dan Hilbert, and Naomi Stanford weigh in on the future of strategic staffing, virtual workplaces, disruptive technologies, globalization, and what practices will—and will not—help organizations thrive.
Positioned captures the best workforce planning practices from leading organizations such as Boeing, HP, the U.S. Intelligence Community, and others in the private and public sectors. The book’s Analytics section examines the evolution of workforce analytics and the roles of HR professionals and consultants. In an era of globally increasing complexity and competition for talent, shortages and misalignment can derail an organization’s effectiveness. This book helps them get back on track.

"Positioned" is well-written and logical. It fits nicely with other, cutting edge works, e.g., Dan Pink's "Drive."
The tone is conversational, and you can tell from the first chapter that Dan Ward is someone that has applied his lessons to many practical situations.
I appreciate that the author also points out the limits of his personnel theory. Many authors wax eloquently about their successes, but they are mum on where their points don't apply. Dan Ward boldly tells you where this doesn't work, e.g., static labor pools, low end skill positions, etc.
My Division is actively applying Ward's techniques!
