       Igniting Sustainable Growth: Keys To Keeping Your People Strategy Ahead of The Growth Strategy

    Are you a trusted advisor when your organizations strategy is being developed?

    Human Resources traditionally may have been asked for input after the strategy has been developed or modified for the year. That time needs to be over.

    We will discuss how strategy is about making choices and about being different in a chosen market. We will discuss how these choices impact the functions, the capabilities, the talent and the activities needed to win.

    Human Resources is one of the key functions in an organization that must be fully aligned with the overall strategy. As with the other functions (Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance and IT), each year a business or organization faces external challenges and opportunities that cause the overall strategy to be revisited in order to stay on the desired growth trajectory.

    You will get the most out of this session if you are an HR professional or a key functional leader in a business or organization that is growing and competing for the best talent needed to sustain growth.
