Introducing the
QWA Workforce Operating System

Quantumwork Advisory has developed the QWA Workforce Operating System to help our clients translate strategies into action and provide the necessary structure to create an executable strategic workforce plan. To overcome generalist approaches for each component and sub-component, our teams have prepared diagnostic tools, curated an ecosystem of cloud applications and partnerships, and continually conducted market research to understand market benchmarks and best practices. 

The Diamond Model visualizes seemingly complicated workforce strategy at a component level, making it simpler to assess strengths and weaknesses and develop transformational initiatives to address critical weaknesses. The model combines traditional analysis with systems thinking to understand how elements in a system are interrelated and impact the overall workforce performance. Together with design thinking, the model also serves as a robust planning tool to visualize how the components of the workforce operating model interact and highlight interdependencies across the system.
