Here is a quick recap of the insights Ulrich shared with viewers:

Value added focus of HR: Towards outside-in.

The outside-in wave focuses on how HR delivers value to customers, investors and communities outside the organization as much as employees and line managers inside.

Talent outcome disruption: Towards well being.

For decades, HR focused on the outcome of talent as characterized by the “war for talent”.  In our research, we have found a disruption in that HR should focus even more on organization and leadership.

Organization outcome disruptions: Towards capability.

As organizational capabilities become connected to market opportunities outside the organization, they disrupt how people think about, work with, and shape organizations.

Leader outcome disruptions: Towards leadership, navigating paradox, and brand.

There are three disruptions in leadership. One is a pivot from the individual leader to the collective leadership team. Leaders matters, but leadership matters more.

These disruptions of HR value are the foundation of the Michigan Ross Advanced HR Executive Program, the longest running and highest rated public HR executive program in the world. The AHREP program is just one of the many world-class executive education programs that make up the portfolio of experiences recently ranked in the Top Ten by the Financial Times.
