Client:  DEEWR/Skills Australia

This report seeks to offer definitional clarity around the issue of workforce development and the planning processes on which it typically relies. It considers approaches to data collection for workforce planning in four advanced industrialised nations: the United States of America (USA), the United Kingdom (UK), Singapore and Norway. Whilst no international system can be supplanted to Australia, a comparative approach allows elucidation of the origins, preconditions and outcomes typically associated with different models of workforce planning.
