Strategic Human Resource Management-India

Program Description

As we navigate through turbulent economic times, directing the human side of the business

becomes a defining element of business success. As such, this program covers four key areas:

• Current business realities and their implications for creating and sustaining a

competitive advantage through people

• The logic and process for developing a powerful and business-focused human resource

strategy

• Tools that are required for successful change management

• Key aspects of effective leadership

The central and defining element of an effective HR strategy is cultural capability, which

embodies how people think and behave together in a way that creates substantial value for

customers and shareholders. We will apply the process of defining the key cultural capabilities

for your business and identify the organizational practices that have the greatest impact on

business performance. Each component of the change management toolkit will be examined

and applied to your personal context. Finally, we will focus on characteristics and practices that

differentiate high-performing and low-performing leaders. In this context, you will have the

opportunity to determine your long-term and short-term leadership agenda.

Program Focus

The content explored in this program focuses specifically on the challenges facing HR

professionals in India. Dr. Wayne Brockbank serves as faculty director for this program, and has

served in the past as faculty director for the Global Program for Management Development

in India. Armed with extensive research and consulting experience with Indian companies in

a variety of industries, as well as leading multinational corporations, Professor Brockbank is

well connected with the realities of Indian and developing country markets. He has earned

an important distinction as one of the most accessible, hands-on educators in the executive

education industry.
