In this episode, Robin Boomer outlines the top sources for pinpointing the trends that could impact your organisation and workforce planning:

Competitors: What do others in the space do?

Colleges: What Research & Development, universities or think tanks can we look to?

Colleagues: In terms of skills, what is the groundswell doing and how can we develop skills organically, from the ground up?

Communities of practice: What industry publications can we look to, what regulatory changes impact us, and what are the practices of others in the same profession?
