HR planning should be focused on helping the organization achieve its strategic intent, which derives from its vision. These strategies need to both service the short-term, operational concerns (business planning) and the slightly longer-term strategic (business/corporate planning) cycle.

Your original response to this discussion question should be a minimum of 200 words.
