Identifying Future Capabilities

Identifying Future Capabilities

Identifying future capabilities helps you think about the skills, knowledge and experience your employees will need, and plan the people element of your business plan.

Identifying future capabilities

In an ever-changing world, it has never been more important to understand the future needs of your business.  Time spent thinking and planning the future will ensure your business continues to be dynamic and grow. 


Good business strategies have a range of operational plans, one of which is the people plan. Identifying future capabilities helps you build a robust people plan, by thinking about the skills, knowledge and experience you will need.


Starting with the business objectives, we will work with you to create a clear picture of what your workforce will need. Having identified the demand for critical skills, knowledge and behaviours, we will then look at how well your current workforce meets these needs. In so doing we create a plan which helps you:

  • Make the right investment choices for recruitment and development
  • Create career opportunities for your current workforce
  • Recognise and reward the skills, knowledge and behaviours that are most critical to business success
  • Build a culture of self development


To help you deliver the plan, we provide lots of practical tools too. We create job or team profiles and competency frameworks for recruiters. If a structural change is needed, we can you design new roles and build new teams.


If people are your biggest asset, supporting and investing in them will help them fulfil their potential and the organisation deliver its vision.
