As technology is advancing to enable us to answer bigger, more strategic questions- what does that mean for the people we need on our Workforce Analytics and Planning teams? Who do you need in these positions? What are the required skills? How do you develop them? How do you keep them engaged? This session will explore the people side of these quantitative roles from someone who had built internal teams from scratch- twice. A competency model will be presented for internal talent and a recipe for extracting maximum value from the “data story” will be discussed.
