  2. Data Sources for SWP. This reference provides a summary of internal and external data sources that can inform SWP. HR leaders can review this information with their teams to identify the most relevant data sources for their SWP efforts.
  3. SWP Beyond Jobs. Shares 4 steps to break down roles into tasks, and then use those tasks to inform SWP strategies. Figure 1 on page 37 shows 5 criteria that can be used to assess a role’s “composability”—the degree to which it can be broken down into tasks.
