In today’s turbulent business world, most companies find themselves in a complex, competitive environment in which the formulation and execution of strategy are more critical than ever before. When companies fail to deliver on their promises, most blame poorly designed strategy. No worthwhile strategy can be planned without taking into account the organization’s ability to execute it - strategies most often fail because they were not executed well. Things that are supposed to happen don’t happen.
Either the organizations aren’t capable of making them happen, or the leaders of the business misjudge the challenges they face, or both. HR leaders need to provide strategic insights on how the firm’s human capital can best deliver on its’ strategic business objectives. Participants will learn and use a variety of strategic tools, frameworks, and mindsets to better understand the company’s business strategy and business model, their competitive position of their industry, and it’s human capital value proposition for competitive advantage.
HR leaders will have a firm grasp of the key concepts, models, and language of strategy and the implications strategy has on the design, capabilities and deployment of the workforce. Special emphasis is placed on connecting strategic and tactical organizational design issues, budgeting and analytics, developing a high-performance culture, and how it can create new organizational possibilities.
