Capacity planning and forecasting is the process to determine the capacity needed by an audit organization to meet changing demands for its infrastructure, field work and continuous lifecycle maintenance. In the context of capacity planning, "capacity" is the maximum amount of work that an audit organization is capable of completing in a given period of time.
A discrepancy between the capacity of an audit organization and the demands of its customer’s results in:
Reduced quality and rework
Inability to meet demand
Damage to the business reputation
This session explores the means to define effective human resource capacity planning and forecasting with proven examples to minimize or eliminate the root causes before jumping the gun to hire more people only to find out later a lack of people was not the real root cause. Also explored is the process by which the immediate and long term destiny of the organization is forecasted and logically planned. It is through both Capital and Human activity that audit organizations expand and sustain themselves along with the ability to maximize the other allowing businesses to seek out open opportunities.
