Mindmap the human resources your business needs.
Every business plan needs people. People can be working on a strategic or operational level (or both) and be part of the internal or external workforce (partners). Map the people you need to make your plan a success alongside categories based on methods like the business model canvas.
The Human Resources Canvas helps visualize the human resources needed to execute your business model. The 9 building blocks from the Business Model Canvas are translated into common business departments. Plot experts in a strategical or operational role or mindmap partners to create a team that is capable to execute your business model.
- Mindmap your team onto the canvas and allocate every expert or partner properly using the columns by strengths and expertise.
- Identify the gaps and crowded areas. Determine if these are potential problems. Take notes.
- Reorganize the team in order to solve the 'gaps'. Create a well-balanced team that fits your business model. Try to keep every expert inside their comfort zone by staying close to their strengths and expertise.
- Gaps that can't be filled can mean (1) a vacancy or (2) a potential partnership is needed or (3) a change of plans/strategy.
If you prefer to use your own department names, feel free to put cards on top of the labels, or take a look at the Key Resources Canvas for more freedom and customization.
