Strategic Human Resource Planning

Ann Arbor, MI, 13 Apr - 17 Apr 2015

Program Description

Transform your HR function from operationally reactive to strategically proactive. This cutting-edge program will help you build and implement a business-focused HR strategy and develop your HR unit as a truly strategic business partner.

We'll begin by exploring your business strategy and then examine the cultural, capability, and talent requirements necessary to make your strategy a reality. We'll then investigate the ways your workforce can have a major impact on your firm's performance and learn how to identify who creates value in the firm, and where and how they play this role. You'll emerge with a roadmap to create customer and business value through HR.

Program Highlights:

During the program you will map your HR operations to the organization's overall strategic goals and explore how you can impact the bottom line as a leader in your HR role. Implementing strategic plans in global environments is especially emphasized.
 

Quick Tip

The Key Ingredients for Change

By Prof. Dave Ulrich

So often our intentions to implement sustained change fall short, and we find both our personal leadership efforts and our organization initiatives starting with fanfare and then fizzling.

What does it take to realize sustained organizational change? Through our most recent round of research, assessing data from more than 20,000 HR professionals globally, we have identified the proven ingredients for successful change. Successful change requires starting it correctly, and then making it stick.

Here's how:

Make it simple: Narrow down complexity and focus on a few key behaviors that have high impact on the most important issues.

Watch how you spend your time: As the old maxim goes, actions speak louder than words. Employees see what leaders do more than they listen to what you say. Pay attention to how you spend time, what issues you spend your time on, and with whom you spend your time.

Be Responsible: To realize change, you must take full personal responsibility for it. Make your commitment public, follow up, and don't relent.
