Hello Jazi,
Manpower Planning is the first step where an organisation analysis its manpower need keeping in mind turnover rates, Coprporate policy for promotion and success planning and retrenchment/ super annuation. Once the next year manpower requirement plan is finalised then a recruitment plan is drawn up. A recruitment plan involves - job description, qualification details/ skill level and recruitment sources, dates for recruitmnet and tying up dates with institutions e.tc.
Hope this clarifies the question.
