Dear Management Doctor:
As a follow up to my e-mail a few weeks back, attached is a copy of our final 2011-15 Workforce plan. I am still interested in knowing if others in our world are taking on this type of planning but feel free to share as you would like. We did this all in-house and used team members from across the department. The costs was limited to buying some books and teamwork. I am now working with both the Executive and County Council on implementation.
Let me know what you think.

This is a most impressive and sensible approach. I sense tht many cities and counties are so bogged down in short-range budget problems that this kind of long-range organizational thinking is not being done. Maybe yur efforts will motivate them to take actions. Let's see what kind of response we get.
Keep up the good work.
The Management Doctor
