Companies are more and more confronted with a lack of skilled workers. Especially when dealing
with technology shifts, it is important to analyse the effects on value added and employment within
a companies' value added network in order to allocate resources adequately. According to a study
conducted by the Boston Consulting Group and the World Federation of People Management
Associations, about 46 million additional workers will be needed in Western Europe till 2030, and
26 million workers in the United States respectively, mostly highly skilled workers. Therefore one
recommended course of action is the introduction of a strategic human resource planning method
in order to evaluate human resource needs within technology management.
This paper aims on setting up the framework for a method to determine value added and
employment effects by linking technology management methods with existing human resource
management methods and macroeconomic models in order to quantify a company`s future
demand for workers within their strategic HR-planning. The benefit of this method firstly is the
usability of the model within strategic planning and decision processes compared to existing,
highly complex macroeconomic models. Secondly it builds upon technology management
methods, e.g. technology-roadmapping, that are already broadly used in companies.
