The fluidity and responsiveness of global business planning has outstripped the adaptive capacity of traditional workforce planning models. This separation leads to unrealistic forecasts and missed business outcomes. This article examines ways that the stickiness of workforce planning models can be reduced. Specifically, workforce planners are challenged to track and assess differences in employee cohorts or alternative work forces across countries, multiple sub-optimal alternatives outside the traditional boundaries of the firm, and to incorporate shocks associated with innovation peaks such as those associated with Web 2.0 technologies.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
