(Jackson and Schuler, 1990). "Human resources is part of the strategic business planning process." (Jackson et al, 1990). HR planning is a fundamental asset in organizations for policy and procedure development, regulatory compliancy, and merger and acquisitions. Every aspect of forward movement within an organization is conducted as a direct result of strategic planning.
