    Program Description:

    Participants in the session will learn how to broaden their view of organizational strategy to be more in line with CEOs and CFOs. Participants will learn how to identify specific areas where their knowledge and ability can be leveraged to improve their strategic value to their organization. They will also learn how to identify key organizational performance drivers where more in depth knowledge can improve their ability to make an important strategic contribution.

    Two significant trends are affecting the human resources function. First, the US is rapidly transforming into a knowledge based economy which greatly increases the need for a properly skilled and effectively deployed workforce.  Second, many day to day tactical HR functions can now be outsourced making more time available for strategic contribution. These two trends present an opportunity for HR to transform their role into a strategic partner than can help chart the organization’s course for growth and improvement.

    In this session Alan will describe how the HR function is perceived by CEOs at the macro level. Then he will present specific ways to leverage this perception into a more strategic partner role. He will discuss the specific types of information that HR must know and understand to become a productive strategic contributor. Finally, he will present a real business case scenario with a focus on the best way for HR to help solve an important problem and support an improved business outcome.
