All the information that is stored about your employees when working with Talent management can be used to make decisions for how the future workforce should be compound to reach the long term vision.

If your company has, for example expansion plans to another country, you may need to plan quite long ahead what competence you will needto recruit or develop. You compare your current situation with different future scenarios and competence need. The gap between the current situation and the chosen future scenario needs to be closed, either through external / internal recruitment or competence development of the current workforce.
