Firestarter Workforce

Firestarter Model – Workforce


This model explores an aspect of workforce planning.

This model shows the challenge that was faced a number of years ago, when implementation of the European Working Times Directive led to a step-increase in the demand for Middle Grade doctors, but only a gradual rise in Specialists.

By varying ONLY the annual intake to specialist training (junior – middle grade – consultant) try to meet the demand for both types of doctor (over a 30 year time period).
