Business Strategy for HR Leaders

Aligning HR strategy to the corporate vision for competitive advantage

The traditional operational role of HR leaders has seen a dramatic shift in the last decade. More and more organisations have identified HR as a key business unit that has significant implications in achieving corporate objectives. HR senior executives are expected to create substantial contributions to the strategic decision making process, as such, they must first develop credibility and demonstrate the required capabilities by having a firm grasp of the key concepts, models and language of business and strategy.

Effective HR executives working in partnership with an executive team have direct impact on an organisation’s success. By consciously aligning the HR function with business priorities, they can influence the formulation of the business strategy and help define a unique implementation framework while taking into consideration the organisation’s most valuable resource: its human capital. For such a partnership to thrive, it is critical that all members of the executive team understand the complexities of the business environment and their unique roles in this leadership matrix.

Business Strategy for HR Leaders provides senior HR executives with intensive training in strategy that will enable them to participate equally in the boardroom and contribute to the decision-making processes in their organisations. This programme focuses on empowering HR leaders with key strategic concepts used by CEOs and corporate leaders and how they can use these to develop their own HR agenda to complement the organization’s global strategic initiatives.
