9781259837647: Victory Through Organization: Why the War for Talent is Failing Your Company and What You Can Do About It


The next step in HR’s creation of value―turning the war for talent into victory through organization

“HR is not about HR. HR begins and ends with the business.”

The RBL Group and the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan have shaped much of the HR profession for 30 years through the Human Resource Competency Study (HRCS).   With this latest (7th) round of research, Dave Ulrich, David Kryscynski, Mike Ulrich and Wayne Brockbank call for us to pivot from fighting the “war for talent”―to creating victory through organization.

Sure to be an HR classic, Victory Through Organization provides the rationale for shifting your focus from how to help individuals prosper to  the organization. Filled with fact-based insights and field-tested strategies, it demonstrates that organizational success isn’t just about the talent you have―it’s about how the collective organization makes the individual talent better.  To this end, HR professionals and business leaders will learn:

· How they can ensure that organization creates greater value than the sum of individual talent parts.
· How to create more integrated HR solutions for business results across multiple stakeholders
· How HR departments can better create a comprehensive information advantage
· How HR professions can master the competencies that have greatest impact on their personal effectiveness, key inside and outside stakeholders, and business results

Victory Through Organization offers tools business leaders and HR professionals need to better respond to emerging opportunities, and it provides expert advice for building HR departments to deliver measurable business value. You will learn how to build organization capabilities, strengthen systems, and empower human capital―for longer lasting success.

Building and retaining a solid, talented workforce is a great thing. Creating  the competitive organization that wins is even more important for business results.

From the Back Cover:

“This groundbreaking work will change conversations in executive suites around the world. As an exceptional blend of theory and research, it defines how executives and HR professionals can deliver value to customers, investors and employees by moving beyond the war for talent to Victory Through Organization.”
--Ram Charan

“A strength taken to its extreme is quite often a weakness.  Victory Through Organization helped me better understand how the noble pursuit of Talent has come at the expense of an equally thoughtful focus on the organizational capability necessary to create competitive advantage.  Dave Ulrich and his colleagues take great pride in being provocative – this book will certainly make you think hard about what really maximizes value in your firm.”
--Kevin Cox, CHRO American Express
 
Victory Through Organization delivers on the promise of its' title!  Challenging your HR department to become a more strategic, enterprise-wide owner of culture and competitiveness will create enormous value for all stakeholders of your organization.  This book demonstrates the power of TEAM . . . and provides you and your HR leadership the playbook you need to become a championship team.” 
--Dave Brandon, Chairman and CEO, Toys "R" Us, Inc.
 
 “Anyone who is interested in creating victory through organization will find this book an essential repository of insights.  Based on decades of empirical research and rich consulting experience, the authors bring to life the keys to moving beyond the war for talent by creating high performing organizations.”
--Leena Nair, CHRO Unilever

Victory Through Organization proves the case that the next evolution of HR will play a pivotal role in shaping winning organizations. It will not be a collection of individuals that will come out on top in our complex and rapidly changing world, but rather more capable, insightful, and aligned organizations.”
--Mike Volkema, Chairman and former CEO, Herman Miller, Inc.

“The book leverages learnings from an epochal study to create a handbook for building competitive organizations in a world where change is the only constant. A must read book for every business leader who strives to ensure that the whole is bigger than the sum of the parts.”
--KV Kamath, President, New Development Bank
