Human resource development (HRD) professionals are increasingly tasked to assist organizations with future focused strategic planning initiatives to create projections on the size, composition, and skill level of the workforce. Based on these projections a range of HRD policies, practices, and initiatives can be planned to ensure that the workforce has the knowledge, skills, and abilities to perform. A number of different approaches are used in making workforce projections. For the purpose of this study two major approaches are reviewed and compared. The setting for this study is the increasingly important, dynamic, and global tourism and hospitality industry.
