How many Bs in Strategic Workforce Planning?

The truth is, it doesn't really matter how many B's you do or don't have.
At eQ8, we consider each and every potential action as a business case - where we look at the costs, benefits, net present value - as well as the risk it mitigates to the organization's ability to achieve its strategic and operating imperatives.
