For the past two decades, business leaders and human resources professionals have been consumed with the war for talent, investing vast sums of money to bring in and manage people. The groundbreaking research in Victory Through Organization reveals that winning the war for talent requires more than managing people; it requires an organization that turns individual people into organizational capabilities. Data from more than 32,000 people in 1,200 businesses reveal that an organization has four times the impact on business performance compared with individual talent. Dave Ulrich and Wayne Brockbank, who are professors and advisers to hundreds of companies, have studied the competencies of HR professionals for more than 30 years. With new insights from David Kryscynski and Mike Ulrich, their team collected data from more than 32,000 respondents to determine how HR can deliver both individual competence and organizational capability to add tangible value to key stakeholders as well as to short-term business results. Through this framework, you’ll focus on the workplace as much as on the workforce, on process as much as on people, on organizational capabilities as much as on individual competencies. Victory Through Organization is ideal for business and HR executives charged with building a more effective HR department and HR practices, and it is an essential guide for any HR professional committed to creating value.
