Workforce and Succession Planning
What is the order of importance of addressing the gaps you have identified?
With appropriate feedback from agency leadership and other stakeholders, you can now prioritize staffing gaps in terms of which positions have the greatest impact on the success of your agency, office, division, etc.
- Which staffing gaps can be handled in a routine way with a minimum commitment of resources (e.g., continue the exam process that was successful in the past and is expected to meet anticipated needs)?
- Of the remaining staffing needs, what are the benefits and risks of addressing or not addressing each? Based on the benefits and risks, what is the relative priority of each of the needs?
