Hi Swati
There are alot more factors which needs to be considered before we actually come up with the Manpower plan.
If we go in detail..., we need to understand what is the % growth in revenue the company is planning to achieve.
Next step would be to understand will the current Manpower be able to reach the revenue.., if not what is the gap which needs to be fulfilled.
The gap would precisely be at various levels (junior, senior etc..,) based on which the entire plan can be made.

This exercise is done generally by discussing with the managerial / supervisory staff and getting to know their needs. In some cases, it may require more than one sitting with concerned manager / supervisory staff.
The reason being:-
  • Some of the points in your questionaire may require several direct /indirect questions.
  • Through questionaire, some issues may not come-out..
  • This gives an opportunity for HR personnel to interact with people
You may keep the questionaire-points as it gives a structured approach to start and proceed with the discussions.

Hi Swati
The Manpower Planning has to be done keeping in mind the Organisations short term as well as long term goals, the total funds allocated for potential manpower, the revenue generation of the business of the organisations, any new venture or diversification...
In short the the Manpower planning has to based on the following:
1. Quantity
2. Financials
2. Quality (of people)
take care

Manpower Planning is very critical in any orgnization. While we start working on Manpower Planning it is essential to know why my organization is looking forward for Manpower Planning? What organization is going to achieve out of it. If my MPP Freamwork is leading me to Career Planning, Succession Planning, IDPs or it is only helping me for recruitment. Ours is Chemical Manfucturing Organization with 3000 direct employees and we have started implementation of MPP Freamwork since last April 2008 and it is today the Main Function which is leading us for Human Capital Development and helping is for Recrutiment, T&D, CPP,SP,Competency Mapping, Identification of HP-HP, HP-LP, LP-HP,LP-LP etc. Freamwork is based on stategics of our diversified businesses and available talent pool. May be later on will share the broad freamwork. Thanks

i think its fair enough.
lay due focus on "staffing and scheduling" by line managers and finally on learning curve or which skillsets to aquire strategically.
one eg of staffing and scheduling could be as adopted amongst BPOs (as per COPC) analyse the historical call flows and predict future trends, current capability index Vs SLA and then adopt 100% flexibility in forming shifts to workflow
in case of a confusion/ clarification feel free to contact
