This webcast is intended to build on the previous session in the succession planning webcast series. In previous webcasts in this series, we built the case for succession planning in healthcare. We obtained a commitment from key stakeholders. We clarified the goals, established the roles, and created an accountability system. Now it is time to do the work: clarifying and managing talent.

Clarifying and managing talent is a critical step as technology advances, workforce needs diversify, skills gaps increase, and the needs of the organization become more complicated. In this webcast, the presenters will:

  • Review the trends and challenges in healthcare.
  • Examine the Rothwell Model and Step 1: Get commitment.
  • Provide tools and techniques to update job descriptions and competency models.
  • Discuss strategies to manage talent.
  • Examine forecasting methods.

You’ll learn to:

  • Simplify the Rothwell Model.
  • Align job descriptions and competency models to organizational goals.
  • Manage job performance.
  • Forecast an organization's talent needs.
