NASA 2011 Workforce Plan
Strategic management of human capital requires that policies, processes, and structures are in place to ensure that critical workforce skills and capabilities are available and effectively used in the timeframe needed to enact the major activities of the Agency's mission. NASA's 2011 Workforce Plan is the management tool that guides and prioritizes the work of the Office of Human Capital Management and the human capital community, ensuring that work priorities are aligned with higher level Mission Support Plans, the NASA Strategic Plan, and NASA’s Transition Strategy.
The 2011 Workforce Plan focuses on five workforce goals and numerous planned deliverables that enable NASA to achieve its overarching Strategic Workforce Goal: "Identify, acquire, and sustain the workforce needed to successfully conduct NASA’s current and future missions."
Goal 1: Plan and Position for Mission Success
Goal 2: Recruit and Employ
Goal 3: Train and Develop Talent
Goal 4: Sustain a High-Performing Workforce
Goal 5: Enable Efficient HR Services
The Workforce Plan is not static. To continually ensure efficiency, effectiveness, and alignment with NASA's vision and goals, the Workforce Plan will be reviewed and updated regularly, evolving in step with changes to NASA's priorities and plans. It will position NASA's HC programs and policies to support NASA’s strategic direction.
