It is well known that a key requirement for business success in modern day context is alignment of people processes with business strategy. People processes are key since it is the people of an organization who make judgments about how markets are changing, create strategies based on these judgments and translate strategy into operational realities. In other words, if an organization does not get its people process right, it will never fulfill the potential of its business. People processes, facilitating shared mindset, talent development, speed, collaboration, leadership, accountability and learning, are intangibles that are difficult to imitate and hence are sources of competitive advantage and valuation. Importance of people processes are becoming more clearer as it is now widely recognized that managers working at various levels and driving business and support functions will themselves have to be different and smart in terms of their thinking and feeling in order to ensure that their strategies are different and smart. This is so since competition today is not between business and business but between head to head.
How do we ensure that managers coming up the corporate ladder from bottom to CXO and then CEO level are increasingly becoming better, different and smarter vs their counterparts? Since ensuring availability of right person for the right job is a key HR function, HR Professionals have a strategic role to play for continued success of any business organization. To perform this role and become strategic partners of business, HR must see the changes coming in the industry even before the CEO or business heads can see. Thus, to become a strategic partner of business, HR has to upgrade its role from traditional policy, process and procedure orientation to a strategic role. In order to be effective in such a new role, HR must speak at ease the language of business, strategy, money matters – along with of course people related matters – like or even better than managers working in other functional areas.
Recognising the growing strategic role of HR professionals in driving business success, National Institute of Personnel Management [NIPM] and The Strategy Academy Centre for Advanced Studies [TSACAS] have decided to offer the program titled “ HR AS STRATEGIC PARTNER OF BUSINESS”. The details of this innovative program are given below.
