Successful workforce capability framework implementation doesn't have to be painful

Continually evaluating a capability framework can uncover weak areas or structures in your organisation
CANBERRA, Australia - Aug. 23, 2022 - PRLog -- In many organisations, high-effort frameworks can be tossed aside onto the business waste heap. This can often occur due to a poor or lacking implementation plan. The Acorn subject matter experts have recently been talking a lot about building strong workforce capability frameworks, but even they acknowledge the need for a proper implementation plan to achieve success.

A workforce's capability framework defines the common processes relating to workforce development that support an organisation's purpose. Successful implementation comes from a plan. The Acorn experts propose a three step plan: preparation, implementation and maintenance.

In the preparation phase, organisations need to put a change management plan in place. This involves defining process owners, outlining the purpose of the capability framework, marketing the new framework to employees and ensuring the organisation develops the right capabilities first.

In the implementation phase, organisations must think about how they want to utilise their capability framework. Two common ways include training and development and workforce planning.

The third phase, maintenance, is all about monitoring impact. It's the accountability phase of capability implementation. Here, organisations will want to consider employee performance, cross-function collaboration and data utilisation.

"Continually evaluating a capability framework can uncover weak areas or structures in your organisation," said Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director). "For example, environmental scans and heatmapping may show that team frameworks – for sales, marketing, leadership – need to be incorporated to create clearer career development for employees and HR leaders to act on."
