HR-Driven Transformation Management Investment Model
It is the rare corporation that recognizes the need to integrate human resources policies, people, assets and procedures with changing business strategies. Rarer still is the organization that acts on this need. Yet, in today’s competitive global market, an integrated strategy is increasingly necessary.
This article discusses a business model we call the Transformation Management Process that enables organizations to respond more quickly and more creatively to changing market conditions, business and customer needs. The Transformation Management Investment Model is a Human Resources driven process that the authors have effectively executed in major multinational corporations (e.g., PepsiCo, AT&T, Citibank, & Deutsche Bank).
What global market trends and factors drive the need to manage transformation, and what is HR’s role in connecting business factors to organizational needs?
The new reality driving the need for HR leadership includes factors such as;
- Globalization is increasing
- Speed of change is accelerating
- Cost of transactions is getting lower
- Coordination of activities is better
- Connecting with ‘new’ is increasing
- Networked competing is increasing
- Dis-intermediation is a real issue
- Customers demand aggregation
- Attention is becoming a big issue
