Hi Aravind

I'd like to make the following contribution

Action plans if surplus or Shortage.
(If surplus = Redeployment (Transfers) OUTPLACEMENT, or Retrenchment/Redundancy (demotions, voluntary retirements)

(If Shortage = RECRUITMENT or internal mobility) - Training or Development SHOULD BE A CONTINUOUS PROCESS
