HR Transformation Strategy and Planning

Putting strategy into practice.

All too often, human resource (HR) organizations transform themselves in a strategic vacuum, responding to the business’ day-to-day operating needs without a clear view of the big picture. To be effective, HR needs to align its improvement efforts with the company’s business strategy. This requires an HR transformation strategy that is realistic and executable – with accurate plans, schedules, resource requirements and estimated benefits that the company can rely on.

The first step is to work with the business to understand its top three or four strategic priorities – and then to develop an HR transformation vision and strategy that aligns with those priorities. The next step is to identify the detailed actions, resources, timing and budget necessary to put the strategy into action. Detailed transformation plans and expected benefits should be based on facts and real-world experience, not wild guesses or wishful thinking.
