Demand Analysis – During this analysis, the organization must determine the ideal state of the organization. For example, understanding the number of people with the knowledge, skills, Abilities (KSAs) the organization will need two to three years from now.
Gap Analysis – As supply and demand have been thoroughly reviewed, gaps begin to emerge in terms of number of employees, and skills needed.
Solution Analysis – Here the organization devises solutions on how and when it will achieve its goals.
