Information : People Strategic Plan 1995
The McDonnell Douglas Aerospace (MDA)-St. Louis People Strategic Plan provides integration of enterprise-wide, people-related issues and creates a linkage to the MDA Strategic Business Plan. This Human Resources (HR) goal is to effectively implement multi-sourced data to establish a coordinated, non-duplicative employee plan.
The plan defines strategies for closing the gap between the company’s current and future state, identifies plans executing those strategies, and ensures funds are allocated to carry out the plans. After the corporation develops the visions and strategic corporate objectives, the strategic planning process requires three months of planning and analysis, for a total of nine months for implementation during any fiscal year.
Applying the corporate people vision, MDA-St. Louis formulates objectives aligned with the company’s business objectives. Figure 2-26 illustrates MDA-St. Louis’ environmental assessment process which includes several internal measures and surveys, as well as several external sources through benchmarking with other companies. The key to the MDA process is its thoroughness and carefully thought-out methodology which applies a “Gap Analysis” that concentrates on closing gaps between the current state and the future (desired) state.
