Stephen Pritchard
Financial Times - Connected Business Report, page 1
20 April 2011

PA’s Stephen Brooks, specialist in people management and organisational change, is quoted in the Financial Times report, The Connected Business. Stephen gives his view on the benefits of combining workforce planning and external information.

Stephen goes on to point out that companies need to blend talent management and workforce planning data with external sources of information: “You cannot rely just on enterprise resource planning for that.”
